Vietnam Visa Corp Q&A
Do I need a Vietnam Visa if I am transiting through SGN and HAN?
I will be flying with Vietnam Airlines from Australia to Paris return. The flight travels from Melbourne, via Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN) to Noi Bai International Airport (HAN) and on to Paris. The same applies for the return flight. I will not be leaving the airports at all. Am I required to apply for a tourist/transit visa to Vietnam?
Dear Ms Sarina,
Thank you very much for your question in website www.vietnamvisacorp.com
We are pleased to answer your question.
If you don't leave the airport, you won't need to get Vietnam tourist visa. Please remember that you have to stay at Vietnam airport only.
We would welcome any further questions you have.
