Not unless you're leaving the airport.

I understand this is an older post/question, but I am currently in a similar situation. Kindly read and please provide some assistance or suggestions, if any:

Hi,

Could someone kindly assist me with an answer to this concern. I am a US citizen traveling from Jakarta, Indonesia to Vientiane, Laos on Vietnam Airlines. I have a stop in HCMC on January 4, 2014 for 2 hours and departing for Hanoi via the same Vietnam Airline flight. I will sleepover at HanoiAirport and I don't intent to leave the airport. I will depart on January 5, 2014 also via a Vietnam Airline to Vientiane, Laos. Do I need a transit visa for Vietnam? Your urgent reply will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Macedo

If your ticket is Jakarta to Vientiane, no visa required, but if you have more than one ticket for this trip, then you'll need a visa. I believe you have to transfer terminals in Saigon.

Hanoi is one hell of an airport to sleep in - GOOD LUCK!

In any case, please call Vietnam Airlines to verify the above.
