Passport Control Hall

Crossing between Schengen & non-Schengen

Located at the heart of the main airport complex, the Passport Control Hall (former Arrival Hall) links the Airside Center with Dock E and Dock B.

Passport control to Dock E

The alterations have created a new Schengen external border at Zurich Airport. Passport checks are performed here for all passengers crossing between Schengen and non-Schengen areas.

The Passport Control Hall is imbued with a plain, simple and neutral aesthetic. Clarity, transparency and tranquillity are the key elements of all architectural and functional components within the space. The welcoming atmosphere on either side of the control desks is reinforced by the durable, high-quality materials.
