Scuba diving in Asia forum

Visas and 0pen ended travel

Posted by BrucePomerantz on 28/9/2016 at 17:48

I couldn't find a forum that fits this question. I'm posting here because I plan to scuba and land tour in several southeast Asian countries starting in December 2016.

I am an American in the U.S.A. Because I prefer maximum flexibility in traveling. I typically buy one-way tickets. However, I've noticed several Asian countries, such as Thailand and the Philippines, require round-trip or through-trip tickets for entry as a tourist. I've learned from contacting the embassies that this is a hard-fast rule with no alternatives.

(1) Do Asian airlines permit changes in dates without the exorbitant fees that US airlines charge?

(2) Is there a work around the departure ticket requirement, especially if I apply for a visa while in a southeast Asian country?
