I am no expert in this, but I can still offer my insight based on my experiences in Schipol.>Essentially we are looking at travelling between two non-Schengen Countries via Schengen: >If arriving outside of Schengen, one needs to cross the border to get to NL. >Conversely, If one never goes into NL, s/he is not crossing the border. >Thus, the flight from Japan should arrive around where flights to UK depart. Both of these are beyond Dutch border. (Terminal D 99%)
My guess is that no she would not need to go into arrivals (essentially cross the border into NL) and then cross it again to get back to terminal D from where she just came.
However, as I said, this is just my best guess. What I would do is leave a good few hours (2-3h) between the arrival from the flight from Japan and the departing flight to the UK.
Have you accounted for checked luggage?Sometimes, if you check in at the desk then the people are generous enough to check your bag all the way to the final destination, however, the responsibility for the logistics of it are still upon you. If you wont leave enough time between two flights and the bag wont make it then its your fault etc... However, the check in desk of a specific airline are not obliged to check your luggage to a non-connecting final destination
If I were to have a checked luggage on this trip, I'd leave a few hours between the flights to see what i have to do. this would allows accounting for delays etc as well
Hope this helps. If somebody finds this BS then please do call me out on this.
For visa information please check the corresponding country's Foreign Office. It has a consular section and is, more than often, incredibly useful. From the top of my head I think that Japan is 90 days visa free for EU citizens. Considering the fact that such agreements are almost always reached on a reciprocal basis, EU should be 90 days free for the Japanese as well. But do check the Japanese foreign office.
