Hi Adam,

I do not have any experience with transporting film through Vietnam but I did carry about 15 super 8 cartridges through Thailand and Cambodia. At the time, Thai customs stated that 5 rolls of 8mm or 16mm were permitted but the customs agents at the airport in Bangkok and Siem Reap didn't even check my bag. This was in December 2006/January 2007 and I am not sure if they are enforcing it now. Hope this helps.
