Vietnam Visa - landing in HCMC connecting flight to SR
Sorry if this has been covered but I couldnt find the answer when searching so would appreciate any help.
I will be travelling in June to Vietnam and Cambodia. I fly into Ho Chi Minh Airport from London, UK and then get a connecting flight onto Siem Reap 4 hrs later. I will be in Cambodia for about a week and then returning to travel around Vietnam (for about 2 weeks) via the Mekong Express coach.
Can you tell me if it is possible for me to collect a visa on arrival at Ho Chi Minh Airport even though I will not be exiting the airport?
If it is possible, would this allow me to enter vietnam a week later when i travel by land?
Or is the best thing to do go to the Embassy in London to pick up a land visa?
Thanks in advance

If you do not checkout, just waiting for connection flight to REP you can not get visa there. In your case, go to Vietnam from Cambodia by land, you have to get Vietnam visa in advance in London or Cambodia.
