I'm a British national. The flight I'm looking at is from Malaysia to Tan Son Nhat International in Vietnam. There's a ten hour stop over before I can make my connecting flight to London.
I am getting a lot of conflicting information regarding my visa situation. worldtravelguide.net/vietnam/passport-visa states:
Transit: Visas are not required for passengers in transit, provided they have an onward/return ticket, are continuing their journey within 24 hours and do not leave the transit area of the airport.
This sounds awesome but they don't cite their sources and I can't find anything official that corroborates with it. I've spent the best part of the last hour googling for more information but have found nothing but conflicting information, some poeple saying a visa on arrival is essential, some saying it isn't, some saying British passport holders are exempt, others saying they're not... my head is in a tizz and I'd be hugely appreciative if anyone could offer some concrete information.
If it does require a visa on arrival I will probably scrap the idea and use a different airline as it makes the whole venture a lot more costly and complicated than it ought to be.
