Do I need a Vietnam visa if I am only changing planes in Vietnam? Final destination is Laos.
Be kindly informed that if you only transit in Vietnam for few hours before taking another flight to other country,there are two options for you:
– If you fly with same airline (from your country to Vietnam and from Vietnam to Laos) and only stay in the waiting room of the Vietnam airport without going out, you do not need a Vietnam visa.
– If you transit in Vietnam but you will go out of the airport for relaxing before taking the new flight or fly with different airlines (from your country to Vietnam and from Vietnam to Laos), you do need a Vietnam visa.
We hope this information is clear to you.
