    I have both an Irish and South African passport and I wondered if anyone had any experience travelling on two passports throughout Asia. The reason I ask is that I've left it quite late to apply for my vietnam visas, so I don't want to send off my Irish passport to the embassy and then not receive it back in time to fly home for christmas (since am living in the UK)! My plan was instead to send my rarely used SA passport to get any visas I'll need and in the meantime I can still travel in Europe on my Irish one.

    Has anyone had a similar issue and have you found it easy/acceptable to swap your passports around (i.e. enter + leave cambods on my irish one, then enter/leave Vietnam on my SA one).

    Any help will be appreciated!
    ta muchly!
