    Does anybody know if it is necessary to have an onward flight ticket out of Thailand when travelling from Siem Reap to Bangkok?

    The only flight that i have booked is from Singapore to Sydeny a few weeks after i arrive in Bangkok from Cambodia.

    It's just that i seen a statement on the AirAsia website talking about needing an onward ticket when going from Cambodia to Thailand...

    Thanks very much,

    In theory to qualify for a 30-day visa on arrival in Bangkok you are supposed to have a confirmed onward flight from Thailand within the 30 days. However, I have never heard of anyone being checked. Similarly, AirAsia could technically refuse to fly you if you don't meet the Thailand entry criteria, as they are responsible for flying you out again if you are refused entry. Again, I have never heard of anyone checking. I flew Airasia from PP to BKK last November, and was never challenged.

    Hi John,

    I agree with #1-- I've never ever been asked for an onward ticket, though by the book, you're supposed to have one... if it comes to the crunch, tell them you're travelling overland to Singapore.
