Changing planes in Schipol

We will traveling from USA to Marseiles and changing planes in Amsterdam. Arriving on Delta and continuing on a Delta code share flight operated by Air France. Will we have to go through immigration in Schipol? I think our luggage will be checked through to final destination but have never had a connecting flight in Europe so not sure how it all works. Anyone have experience with this. We were told a visa is not necessary. We are only staying for 10 days. There is a 2 hr time between flights. Any help appreciated thanks

Hi there,



You are entering Schengen zone at Amsterdam hence yes Immigration is cleared there. Plenty of time though.

All the best,

Luggage will be checked through and as Erik said 2 hours is PLENTY time. Schiphol is really easy to connect in so don't worry about it. If a US citizen then it is correct you don't need a visa to enter Europe.
