Hi, I am a Colombian citizen, I will travel to Paris from Australia and I have to stop at Ho Chi Minh City for about 13 hours. Do I have to get a transit visa for Vietnam? Thanks in advance for your answer. Maria Jose. 

Dear Maria,

Be kindly informed that you don’t need to apply for visa if your flights are connecting, the airlines carrier is in charge of transferring your luggage from Australia to Paris, and you are supposed not to leave the transit area.

To make sure, please kindly contact your airlines for exact information.

Should you need any further information, feel free to let us know.

Best regards,
