How we were not allowed to transit in Singapore – new rules of entry
Early morning. Swedish breakfast at 6 am in Saigon Hotel (Country Vietnam). Hurry at the airport. I run down the street and shout: &# 171; taxi&# 187;.
It’s good that Tanshonnyat Airport (SGN) is located near the center of Ho Chi Minhine. Managed in time.
At the reception of the airline Viet Jet, which we plan to fly away to Singapore, big, even a huge line, and we have been involved in the online flight yesterday.

I went to the reception
Well.. I walked over to the business class rack to ask us to issue tags for manual stack and issue tickets, but my girl demanded a visa to Singapore.
With scolded eyes, I’ll immediately reach the tickets with flight from Singapore in the coming days. Demonstrating.
The girl says that She needs to receive a visa from us to Singapore, And what without it, we do not get to the flight.

Here I thought that something went wrong.. After all, exactly 2 years ago, we went out and went out from Singapore low cost airlines without a visa, Demonstrating the reverse flights.
Yes, and on our resources on a transit residence in Singapore, it is not written that something has changed in the rules of entry. I checked in advance, but the changes occurred..
I asked when such changes occurred, the representative of the company said that from about the middle of 2014.
This means that if you have purchased tickets through Lookers, which is higher, from the list, you may not be allowed to fly to Singapore and you lose, most likely your money and flight itself.
We had to pay 30.000 rubles for new airline tickets.
Singapore celebrates the 50th anniversary of the city. It could not be missed!
By the way, in that &# 171; malicious&# 187; day, we could not miss our 96 hours in Singapore, t.To. planned a wonderful holiday new year exactly there.
Therefore, we found tickets on the same day at standard airlines and flew away, without a transit visa to Singapore with incredible comfort from Singapore Airlines, paying thirty.000 rubles for 2 tickets . Not cheap.
It’s good that I had a coupon for 250 euros from the BRAVOFRIENDS service, he gave us Discount in 15.000 rubles And everything turned out to be cheaper by 2 times.
Stunning comfort creates Singapore Airlines for his passengers, we did not regret paid money
