Comment "Are Customs and Immigration officials still trying to exhort" on Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Vietnam

I am a Viet Kieu who have traveled back to VN about 4 times since 2001. So, that's basically 8 times going in/out of the airport immigration and customs. Of these 8 times, I've been "asked" explicitly 2 times for "coffee money" - I rejected both times, and 1 time the officer/extortionist just held my passport for about 3-4 minutes without saying anything (he finally let me go when the lines grew longer and people became antsy). The last time was 2016. I was wondering if people are still experiencing these extortions at Tan Son Nhut airport, or has the VN authority cracked down on these shameful activities?
