Transit Visa

Hello, as an Egyptian whose planning to visit Ecuador soon, I choose KLM airlines which is going to stop in Amsterdam for few hours before presuming the trip. Do i need a transit visa in Amesterdam?

Thanks

No, Egyptian citizens do not need a transit visa to transit in the Netherlands.

You can check this to confirm for yourself here:

I guess I don't understand your confusion as Egypt is not in the list of countries whose citizens need a transit visa for all Schengen airports in the link you provide.

But in any event, I have provided a link to an official European Commission site which clearly shows Egyptian citizens do not need a transit visa for the Netherlands.

To be more explicit here is the matrix from the EC which shows that Egyptians would only need a transit visa in one of the Schengen states, specifically the Czech Republic:

And here is an official site for the Kingdom of the Netherlands which also confirms the European Commission site above:

So, no transit visa needed if you remain in the international transit area and do not pass through immigration.
