Did know somewhere to post this but hopefully someone can help.
I am wanted to get some advice on my travels.
It is more about visas than anything else.
I am travelling to China initially for a few days, so I have applied for a visa there.
Then I am going to Thailand from China by flight, so I think should I get a visa as I concerned in China without a visa to Thailand they might not let me board. I have a trip booked in Thailand and when there I am leaving via a land boarder cross into Laos, where hopefully I can obtain a visa on arrival as I will be flying out from Laos into Vietnam.
So I know I can obtain visa on arrival in Hanoi but I have read if I want the VOA then I need letter of approval. Do I really need this? It seems straight forward enough to get. However again once I done what I wanted to do in Vietnam, I am leaving Vietnam by boarder crossing at the Tinh Bien/Phnom Penh land boarder where I will go onto Cambodia. I am worried when I get to Hanoi they might say no I can't have a visa as I have no flight. So I am not sure if I should get a Vietnam visa in advance.
However, in Cambodia I do have a flight to Malaysia. So hopefully I can get my visa on arrival there. I know about e visas and these are not accepted at this particular land boarder as mentioned above for Cambodia.
Then from Malaysia I will fly into Singapore. I know being a UK resident I can get visa exemption with Malaysia and hopefully they will be happy with my flight out of Malaysia and into Singapore.
When in Singapore I have a flight out to Indonesia. I don't think I need a visa for Singapore.
Indonesia I think is the same no visa needed. Then I fly from Bali to Japan. Japan I know I don't need a visa and then I fly home.
I am going to be in these countries for less than 30 days so hopefully I should be okay but has anyone done something similar and what was their experience with visa.
I have been speaking to the respective embassies but it is nice to hear what others have done and experienced.
Thank you for reading
