Passport and Identity Card Inspection

Passports and identity cards are not inspected when you are travelling within the Schengen zone of the European Union.

The member states of the Schengen zone can be found at the following site:

If your destination lies outside of the countries covered by the Schengen treaty, your travel documents will be inspected. Please have your travel documents ready for inspection at the designated checkpoints.

At airports in Germany, separate checkpoints have been set up for travellers from EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland and for travellers from other countries as a means of expediting the inspection process.
