To collect your train tickets in Vietnam, you need to go and collect them from the station but it’s not compulsory. Tickets can be collected on the day of travel from any station where there is no counter booked, unless the seat is confirmed or you have purchased a ticket that carries a fee (such as soft berth). No reservation tickets are mandatory for short distances, but if the passenger wants to travel on a specific train, he should purchase a seat in advance. If a passenger does not collect his ticket at the railway station, he/she should send somebody else to collect it and provide authorization.
