Question and Answer
Promptly and conscientiously
Hi, do I need a visa to fly from city to city in Vietnam as part off a international flight from Sydney to London? My flight was booked through Expedia with Vietnam Airlines. I will not be leaving the airports of Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi as it is more of a transit stop.
Please let me know my options and if I need a visa to fly through your country.
Thank you Roxy
Dear Roxana Prince,
Thank you for contacting us.
Please check with your airlines agent if you have to go out the Vietnam Immigration gate (isolated area) to reach the baggage claim belt for transit flight via Vietnam.
If yes, you have to get Vietnam visa to pass Immigration checking booth. In case your luggage will be automatically transferred from a flight to another and you do not go out the isolate area, visa is not required.
We look forward to your reply soon.
Many thanks and best regards,Vietnamvisa.org.vn
