Sylvana van der Vaart
Sergeant, Border Control Brigade, Dutch Border Police (Koninklijke Marechaussee)

“The Dutch Border Police takes the view that there are no limits to safety. Our theme for 2014 is to ensure ‘safety without borders’. However, at Schiphol we are literally dealing with the national border for both departing and arriving passengers. Together with the airport and the airlines, we aim to make the passport control process as fast and comfortable an experience as possible. No-Q, for automated border passage, is a facility we may be proud of - it is an example of collaboration and innovation. For me, Schiphol is a special place to work: no two days are the same, every passenger is different.”
