I am traveling from Taipei to Houston on the same day but I have a connection flight in Narita (Tokyo, Japan) with a different airline. So my flight will be the following:
TAIPEI - DEPARTURE @8:45 hrs with ANA
NARITA AIRPORT - ARRIVAL @13 hrs
I have to claim my baggage
NARITA AIRPORT - DEPARTURE @16:40 hrs with UNITED AIRLINES
My question is that if I have to get a transit visa if I claim the baggage, because I have seen in the webpage that there's a transit counter so I don't have to go out of the airport but there's nothing about the baggage claiming when you have connecting flights with different airlines. Do you know how is the procedure on this matter?
