Vietnam is one of these countries, and does not require any transit visa, as long as you plan to stay inside the airport. However, if you expect to travel Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi during your flight transit awaiting, you need to make sure:
– You are Vietnam visa exempted citizens or not.
Some countries have visa exemption scheme with Vietnam including: Brunei (14 days); Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Cambodia and Laos (30 days); Philippines (21 days); Japan, South Korea, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Russia and Finland (15 days). Learn more about Vietnam visa exemption.
– If you are not in the list, please apply for Vietnam tourist visa on arrival which allow you to stay up to 30 days, at the cost of 10 – 17 USD per visa for processing fee and 45 USD per visa for stamping fee.
