Passport and customs checks

You can also conveniently handle your border control yourself with the automated border control system Easypass on arrival in Terminal 3.

Requiring registration and free goods

Choose the green exit if you have nothing to declare.

Please use the red exit if you have goods with you which should be declared or are carrying more than the approved quantity of such goods.

Goods declaration

Goods intended for retail, trade or commercial use should always be declared, regardless of their value. This also applies to goods subject to prohibitions or limitations (e.g. narcotics, weapons, ammunition, protected animals and plants). Infringements of the Washington Agreement on the Protection of Species will be strictly dealt with and can entail severe fines or custodial sentences. Product piracy is also not regarded as a minor offence! Please do not purchase any counterfeit products. Even the smallest quantities of such will be confiscated by customs officers and can result in prosecution.
