Air Berlin transit in Dusseldorf airport

Hello,

Could anyone clarify the matter with transfer to Zurich flight in Dusseldorf airport... I fly from non-shengen country and certainly will have visa to enter shengen sates. My destination is ZRH, but as i clearly understand * port of entry* will be Germany and my shengen visa will be opened in DUS ( i have to pass immigration between the flights)???? Could anyone confirm if i understand the procedure correctly???

thanks.

In case you have a schengen visa and you fly in to Duesseldorf from outside schengen, you have to pass immigration there and the visa will be opened in Duesseldorf. No further checks in ZRH.

So, you're correct.

Andie008,

Thanks for clarification. Will one hour connection be sufficient for immigration and passing through to the departure gate?????

One hour is plenty. DUS is a small airport. You may need to transfer terminal to terminal but it is simple and quick.
