Question: Require a transit visa?
Hello, My client had a schedule change with Singapore airlines. He was flying directly from Siem Reap to Singapore. He has now been re routed via Danang with a 40 minute re fuel transit. He is a Australian passport holder, will he require a transit visa?
Thank you for your mail.
Please check with your airline's agent if you have to go out of the Vietnam Immigration gate (isolated area) to reach the baggage claim belt for transit flight via Vietnam. If yes, you need to have a visa to pass Immigration checking booth. In this case, you would need to apply for a one month-single entry visa.
If your luggage is automatically transferred from one flight to another and you do not need to go out of the isolated area, you would not need to apply for Vietnam visa.
We hope that the information above is helpful for you. Let us know should you have any further concern.
