>>>I think people are confusing customs checks and passport control...
But now you´re doing exactly that, confusing "Schengen" with "travelling without being checked by customs"
>>>You can then also take the green lane always (and customs officials will see from your luggage tags that you arrived from a Schengen signatory country and not stop you, if you have no checked baggage your ticket will do if you're stopped).
In some airports there may be special terminals for Schengen arrivals without any customs checks at all, in other airports this is the procedure.
No. You might be on a JFK
connexion: your passport will be checked by immigration at CDG
, your baggage, provided it´s checked through all the way, will be delivered into the same hall as the o/d passengers´. Then everybody goes through customs, but only YOU may be subject to a closer inspection, not those who only originated at CDG
I´m afraid it gets more and more confusing for poor ntspelich
