This question already has an answer here:
I've been doing a lot of research on how to travel with dual citizenship and feel like I always get conflicting answers. I'm going to be flying from the US to the Netherlands next month, and then traveling to Edinburgh for a study abroad program. I want to use my EU passport the whole time I am in Europe to avoid needing a visa, but want to make sure I am traveling correctly.
At this point my plan is to check in at the airport in the US with my Dutch passport, and continue using that passport when I land in the Netherlands and throughout my stay in Europe. I then plan on checking in to my return flight back to the US with my US passport and of course showing my US passport when I arrive back in the states.
My main confusion is that I've read that you should always exit and enter a country with the same passport (which I am obviously not doing), but I have also read that you should always enter and exit a flight with the same passport (which I am doing).
If anyone with experience traveling with two passports could let me know if my plan will work and is correct it would be much appreciated! I am not an experienced traveler to begin with so I am very nervous about being questioned by customs or anything like that.
