Visas and border crossings forum
Overland border crossings. Onward travel tickets??
19th February, 2011
Im planning on making as many border crossings as i can overland. Therefore the onward travel tickets for visa purposes is going to be a problem! Was planning on just using whatever transport i can find while out there and making only a couple of flights if possible. Will this be a major issue at the crossings??

In general not many requirements for proof of onward travel when crossing land borders in the region (Thailand,Laos,Cambodia). Might want to be more specific about which countries and be aware which of them require visa in advance (e.g. Vietnam) and/or have land border restrictions (e.g. Myanmar). Also depends on your nationality in some cases.

Thanks Bob. I was thinking of the crossing from Cambodia into Laos at Don Kralor in particular.

I went to Thailand with a return ticket but ended up not using the return, so have been floating between Thailand/Laos/Cambodia and Vietnam for about 4 years give or take a bit.
At no stage have i been asked for an onward journey ticket. I have heard of but never met anyone who has been required to get an onward ticket. The one i heard of was a flight into thailand, they were told to pay a flight out, they did and exchanged it back loosing a bit of commission. Traveling around S.E. Asia is a well trodden path. People do day/return border runs to get new visas frequently. A bus ticket between countries can be $10 to $20.
If some one has had to have a ticket please post.

When I flew to Jakarta, they asked for an onward ticket.

Flying into Bali - no need for onward proof.
Although I don't think the OP mentions Indonesia and the title is 'overland' crossings... just thought i'd put it out there!
