I know this is more of a general/generic question. However, I want to make sure this is feasible before doing it.

The plan is to fly into Chiang Mai, Thailand (from the US), and then fly to Luang Prabang, Laos. From there I will fly to Siem Reap, Cambodia, and then finally off to Hanoi, Vietnam. Finally back to the United States. Each of these tickets will be one way tickets.

I won't be in each country longer than the expected visa times. So there is no worries there.

I know I need a visa for both Cambodia and Vietnam (which I can apply online for both), and I will get a VOA for Thailand and Laos.

I know there are sometimes gotchas that you have to be aware of when doing cross country travel like this (Israel/Lebanon for example).

I'm sure the short answer is no, but, will there be any issues traveling from one country to the next?

  • I did this, but in a different order. It's fine. Are you flying to Hanoi? (I assume so since a bus route would really only make sense via HCMC....) – Roddy of the Frozen Peas Jul 8 '19 at 23:22
  • @RoddyoftheFrozenPeas Yes, I will be flying into Hanoi from Cambodia. I didn't think there would be an issue, but you never know. – TravelLikeBeaker Jul 9 '19 at 1:10

    Can you actually get the complete Vietnam visa online? Or is it only the Invitation letter (then you do VoA with invitation letter at airport). make sure you get that letter early. The price of that letter increases exponentially within 48 hours of arrival date. – Jon Grah Jul 10 '19 at 0:55

    @JonGrah You get the invitation letter. I got mine only 24 hours after applying. It indicates to bring the letter along with passport photos (which you can also take at the airport). Be nice if this was like Australia where you get a full electronic visa – TravelLikeBeaker Jul 10 '19 at 13:01
