Pharmacy at Schiphol

Everyone can use the Airport Medical Services pharmacy. We have a public pharmacy at the airport located next to First Aid and our GP out-of-hours service. The pharmacy’s product range is specifically tailored to meet the needs of travellers and includes a wide range of chemist items and prescription medicines. The pharmacy charges the costs of (most) prescription medicines directly to you health care provider.

Opening hours and product range

The pharmacy is located in Departures 2 in Schiphol Centre and is open 24/7 as are all our medical services – in case of emergencies. If you have consulted one of our GPs, you can immediately collect your required medicines at our pharmacy. If you have not consulted one of our GPs, but you do wish to collect the medicines you need, you can bring your prescription to the pharmacy or email the rescription to In most situations, we will provide you with your medicines the same day. If you do not have a prescription, but you think you might need medication, you can always visit our GP first to discuss this.

Quick and easy access to your medicines at the airport

We offer our travellers quick and easy access to medication at the airport, also after treatment at a First Aid station. However, please make sure to supply the prescriptions in time, so you can pick up or replenish your supply of medicines before departure. This contributes to travellers being well protected when starting their journey.

Travelling with medicines

Are you planning to take medicines with you on your journey? If so, we recommend that you carry your medication in your hand luggage (if possible), preferably in their original packaging. You should always take an English medical passport from your pharmacy with you so are guaranteed that others know exactly what medication you need when abroad. If you plan on taking with you medicines covered by the Dutch Opium Act, we advise you to consult the website of the CAK.
