Question: Information on Vietnam transit visa?

Hello! I would like your help to clear an important doubt.  I would like to know what type of Visa should I request for a transit in Vietnam.

I am traveling from Melbourne, Australia to Paris (return) having a stop in Ho Chi Minh City in the middle.  This means my flight is from Melbourne to Ho Chi Minh and then from Ho Chi Minh to Paris. The same way will be when I return from Paris to Melbourne.

In my first flight (Melbourne-Paris) I have a waiting in Ho Chi Minh of 14 hours between my arrival and my departure to Paris and in my return flight I will have a waiting of 11 hours.

I would like to know what type of visa should I request, Single or Multiple:

– My first arrival to the Ho Chi Minh airport will be July 28th at 4pm, taking the flight to Paris at 9am July 29th. (14 hours waiting between flights)
– My second transit through Ho Chi Minh from Paris will August 17th, taking my flight to Melbourne the same day at 9pm. (11 hours waiting)

I touch the airport in those two opportunities but I wont visit the city.  What should I request?

What is the meaning of 1-2 pax in the chart of the fees information?

Thank you very much for your help.

Question: Visa for Transit through Vietnam

My partner and I am flying to Paris and have to fly via Vietnam. We fly Sydney to Ho Chi Minh City, then Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi, then Hanoi to Paris. Do we need a visa because we are flying between Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi? I asked the airline (Vietnam Airlines) and they said that if we stay in the transit area we don\’t need a visa.
