Using the Privium Lane
When you reach immigration follow the signs for the Privium lane. It takes a mere 10 to 15 seconds to pass through Schipol passport control with a Privium card. You must insert your Privium card into the card reader and then stand 10 to 15 centimetres away from the iris scanner. Look into the scanner with one eye – you can cover the other eye if you have difficulty; remain completely still and do not blink or move your head. Wait until a message appears on the screen saying “identification is completed”. You may then pass through the Privium gate.
If you wear glasses and you cannot see the instructions on the iris recognition screen without them, please ensue that they are firmly pressed against your face and that the actual frame of the glasses is not obstructing your iris.
The iris scanner does not work efficiently with any of the following types of lens:
- tinted lenses
- non-reflective lenses
If you wear any of the above lenses you must take them off in order for the scanner to get a true reading. Sunglasses must be removed! Please note you may not use the Privium lane if you have forgotten your card or if you have not renewed your annual membership.
