Welcome to HAM Depart & Arrive Passport Control

Federal Police: Passport Control

When you leave or enter a country, you must pass through a passport control when crossing the border. A distinction is made between travel within the Schengen area and travel to or from countries that are not part of the Schengen agreement.

Valid travel documents are mandatory

Before traveling, we strongly recommend that you check the validity of your travel documents, such as your identity card or passport, or visa or entry permit.
