I am taking a second trip to Europe in May (2020), specifically Portugal. Departing MSP connecting thru AMS and then onto Lisbon. All airline tickets purchased, flying Delta and KLM (all purchased through Delta). Will have a separate hop on KLM from Porto to AMS, with a one night stopover at Schiphol before departing for home.
With that provided background, my concern is with the hotel being outside of the terminals, a 5-minute walk from arrival area 4, how do I get processed (do I?) through passport control and make my way to the hotel, and then re-enter for flight home the following day?
Perhaps the main concern is leaving the airport for the hotel. I'm looking for more recent guidance in this matter. When contacted, the hotel didn't supply much in the way of guidance.
Also, am I 'free and clear' to take a train into Amsterdam for a bit of sightseeing?
I am familiar with passport control out and inbound on a more typical flight itinerary, with a trip to Barcelona last year. The upcoming trip has this new wrinkle, to me, because I am unwilling to take a 5:00 AM flight out of Portugal and then on home the same day. This way, I can get a later morning flight from OPO to AMS.
Thanks in advance for any help.
(Edited to add: will have one checked and one carry-on bag.)
