Any problems getting in?

Hi there,

My wife and I are flying from Madrid to Bolivia next month on a one-way ticket. I was just wondering if anyone else has done this or if it is necessary to have a return ticket to prove you are going to leave within 3 months?

No that's not a necessity, but if you will have both way tickets then it will cost you less. But of course, you should have some proof to show up. Otherwise it's ok. Reply to this

Thanks Paul,

We are heading off tomorrow so we ended up buying a fully flexible ticket for the return leg just in case.

All the best,

I think in experiences I've had flying to other countries its definately safer to buy a return ticket that is refundable, I was held for 3 hours in san jose costa rica because I didnt have a return ticket and they tried to push a rediculously priced ticket on me, good thing I had my laptop and with them hovering over me I had to buy one before they would let me through customs...just be safe and get a refundable return ticket so if you decide not to leave at that time u can get ur money back Reply to this

The only way you can fly on a one way ticket is if you are a resident of the destination country or if you have a work visa. Otherwise customs will not let you in, the airline should be able to answer any questions. Reply to this

Hello !

There is a way to don't buy the return ticket... ( i used it several times, works great... never tried in USA nor Canada though Xd))
Some countries don't ask for return, check on the ambassy site of the country you want to go, they have all the infos.
have fun !

Hey everybody,

Thanks very much for all the advice, we bought a fully flexible ticket home but weren·t asked to produce it when entering Bolivia (or Argentina/Chile). It gave us a bit of peace of mind though, we just better not forget to get it refunded!

Thanks again.
