visa in old passport
Good day, I am working in Vietnam, but came to my country, South Africa for holiday and to get a new passport. I am going back to Vietnam soon, but now my valid visa is in my old passport.

Luggage pick up during transit
When transferring in Ho Chi Minh airport I read that no Visa is required as long as you stay within the transfer area. How does it work with your luggage then? I will be changing airlines and cannot check my luggage through (FRA-SGN-REP). Is the baggage claim at Ho Chi Minh airport within the transit area? If not, how can you pick up your luggage without having a Visa?
