Visas and border crossings forum

would like to confirm please?

Posted by leeturnbull82 on 5/1/2012 at 19:43

Hi Everyone, firstly a great thankyou because if it wasnt for this website EVERYTHING would be so much more difficult! Me and my gf have been saving up for just over 2 years to go travelling for hopefully around 6 months, we are looking to go to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, after reading the visa section here we have decided rather than obtaining all our visas beforehand we will just obtain them all on arrival (except the Vietnamese which we believe will be best obtained in Bangkok) I ...

Visas and Vietnam Airlines

Posted by herbcorella on 12/11/2011 at 23:40

Recently, we went from Sydney to Vietnam, sort of 2 weeks there; on to Frankfurt and returned to Sydney (transiting through Vietnam). But, what a disaster. Sydney was very helpful and assured us that we need a visa for the stopover (going over) but no visa would be required for the trip home. Well, they should have told Germany, we flew business class and when we turned up for the return leg (Frankfurt - Hanoi - Saigon - Sydney) we were deenied boarding in Frankfurt. No visa, no boarding and ...

Laos to Cambodia border

Posted by jennakuz on 17/12/2011 at 19:55

Hi everyone, I will be travelling through Laos in April of next year and plan to go South to Si Phan Don in order to travel over land to Cambodia (this was recommended to me in another forum). After looking up border crossings from Laos to Cambodia this seems trickier than I imagined. The forums I was reading were quite confusing and i was wondering if anyone could simplify the easiest/quickest way to cross the border? It was saying to book it through a travel agent in what I was reading, but t ...

Crossing the Laos Border near Kontum

Posted by Phiddy on 12/12/2011 at 12:30

Hi, I had a meeting with an sta agent today who basically said that travelling in the south of Laos is really dodgy especially if you're on your own and that crossing the border near Kon Tum in Vietnam is not worth doing. I highly suspect he was just saying this so I would buy some kind of sta tour around Laos (which I didn't) but it has made me a little wary as this is an area I plan on visiting. Has anyone crossed this border recently? How long did it take you / did you have any major proble ...

Multi-passport travelling (Irish + South Africa)

Posted by jemjems on 24/11/2011 at 09:25

Hi, 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 ...

Will I need a multiple entry visa for Vietnam?

So, I bought a plane ticket on a whim in June for September and didn't fully think things through when I planned it out, but upon working out my itinerary I'm unsure if I need to get a multiple entry visa or not. The situation is that my ticket is into and out of HCMC and I'm ending my trip in Bangkok, so I'll be flying from Bangkok into HCMC then catching my plane home (not leaving the airport). I'll be travelling around all of SEA for 3 months and was hoping to just get a single entry visa in ...
