I'm a Japanese national who does not need Visa for entering Schengen area.
I'm now in Ukraine, but I found I need to renew my passport as it is expiring.
So I bought a flight ticket, from WAW (Warsaw) - NRT (Tokyo), departing on July 26th 2018.
As my passport's expiration date is coming soon, October 1st 2018, in most countries, the final date to enter is July 1st, 2018.
It seemed OK, but I found I can not enter Poland with my passport due to the validity date.
I planned to go to WAW by airplane, from Kiev. Or maybe by bus.
Anyway, is it possible to receive baggage and check-in without entering Poland? As I remember usual baggage claim is after immigration control.
Is it possible to enter by car if I show ticket?
