Proof of onward travel on Air Asia?

Posted from within Vietnam.

Hi- i'm sure this has been asked somewhere else before on this forum - but can't find it! Does anyone know if Air Asia requires proof of onward travel before boarding a plane to Thailand? I'm flying from Saigon to Bangkok on the 29th and was wondering if I should buy another plane ticket out of Thailand to be safe. I know Thai immigration doesn't ask for it (was in Thailand last month) but I've heard some airlines require it, so I just want to make sure.

Thanks!

Hi,

I've never been asked for proof by Air Asia nor heard of anyone who has. It seems that only the large mainstream airlines coming from outside SE Asia ask for proof. Of course, that's not a guarantee that they won't ask, but it is highly unlikely.

I've never been asked when flying Air Asia within the SEA region, but I was asked when flying from New Zealand to KL.

I generally you are safe on flights between SEA countries, but don't assume so on long haul flights into SEA.

I have made dozens of flights with Air Asia in SEA and India/Nepal, and I was never asked for proof of onward travel ticket.

have been once-in SIN, holding a single into BKK-and had to sign a disclaimer. Did have a ticket out then on another airline-which they did not accept as enough proof.In INDIA check-in staff can be quite adamant, as it is needed for Indians using the real VoA procedure.
