Not leaving the airport

Hi I will travel to Vietnam, spend a couple of days there and then go on to Cambodia. I will then fly back from Siem Reap to Saigon Airport and on the same day fly onto Dubai- I will not be leaving the airport but I may need to collect my baggage. Will I pass immigration to collect my bags? Will I need a re-entry visa? Thank you

    Dear Summer,

    Thank you for contacting www.vietnamvisa-easy.com,

    In your case, your flight are on the two different airlines and they are not partner airlines, you will have to go through immigration or customs to collect and re-check your luggage no matter where you are going on your second airline.  You are required a visa for Vietnam this time eventhough you are not enter the country or even leaving the airport. Thus, we recommend you to apply for multiple entry Vietnam visa.

    We do hope the information is clear and helpful for you.

    Kind regards,

    Helen
