EU Arrivals

  • If your journey was entirely within the EU, use the Blue channel after reclaiming your baggage. Customs officers will monitor this area and may operate checks.

  • If you have something to declare to Customs, you should go to the Red Point.

Non-EU Arrivals

  • After reclaiming your baggage, you will be required to clear customs. Duty and tax-free allowances are indicated within the Customs Hall.

  • Use the Red Point to declare goods in excess of the allowance and commercial goods. 

  • Use the Green channel if you have nothing to declare in excess of the allowance. Do not use the Blue channel.

  • If in doubt, use the Red Point.
