As a traveller, it's your responsibility to ensure you have the correct visa and travel documents for your trip. You should carefully check which countries you are transiting through before making your booking. A visa is generally required even for transit purposes, rechecking your baggage, or if your flights have different PNR numbers.
How to check your visa requirements:
To be certain, you should also contact the embassy or your foreign ministry for a more detailed visa information.
Since each nationality has its own unique set of visa requirements, we cannot be responsible for any visa issues. We can only provide you with a warning that a visa might be required for your travel.
Airport transit visa
This is the visa you need to transfer through a country. Even if you’re not planning to leave the airport, you might still need a visa. Some reasons include:
- Rechecking your baggage
- Moving between terminals
- Multiple PNRs in your booking
If you need a visa to enter a country, then you should assume (until proven otherwise) that you will need a visa to transit through that country.
If you’re missing a visa, the airlines may not allow you on-board which could leave you stranded at an airport.
