I am a Philippines passport holder working in Kazakhstan. From Kazakhstan I would like to fly to USA but I will have a 2 hour and 30 minute layover in Amsterdam AMS Airport.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Only nationals of the following countries need transit visas in Schengen countries like the Netherlands:

  • Afghanistan
  • Bangladesh
  • Congo (Democratic Republic)
  • Eritrea
  • Ethiopia
  • Ghana
  • Iran
  • Iraq
  • Nigeria
  • Pakistan
  • Somalia
  • Sri Lanka

The Philippines, as you see, is not on the list.

  • I don't think your list is correct (the list also differs between member states – notably citizens of the Philippine would need an airport transit visa for French airports). – neo May 11 '16 at 6:47
