   What I would do is to get the maximum time visa available in Aust and a return flight that corresponds to visa and be prepared to shell out a few bucks to change your flight.

buy the cheapest ticket out of Thailand and say that is where you are travelling to next. Check the budget airlines, I don't think it will cost you much especially if you don't pay to check in any luggage etc.

I have never been asked to show a return flight from Thailand on departing Australia. I have not had one to show them since 2006! That doesn't mean that it will not happen but if you have a visa you should be OK.

 

Best bet is to get a 60 day tourist visa before you leave home. This can be extended by 30 days giving you a total of 90 days.

   My last 2 trips I was required to produce a return ticket or proof of departure ticket in order to get a 60 day tourist visa from Aust. The visas were obtained thru a professional agency used by many travel agents. I think it was Toll.

Consulate offices need a departure ticket before they issue a 60 day tourist visa, at least that's the case with me. You can always buy a cheap ticket & then once you have got the visa, reschedule it.

According to my information will be required not only a return ticket, but even confirmation of your accommodation. As well as demonstrating adequate amount of money.

This should be requiered by the new rules

If you have booked a return flight you are unlikely to be asked to prove that you have a return ticket as the airline will know this already at check-in.  If you have not booked a return ticket and have only say a 30 day visa the airline can be liable to return you to you home country if you get rejected on arrival, hence the need to have a return ticket or proof of an onward flight within the period of your visa.

 

I have traveled out of Australia on return tickets and never been asked, but anytime I have only a one-way ticket, or a return ticket with a return outside the valid visa period, I have always been asked for proof of further travel within the visa period.

I've travelled in and out of Thailand around 15 times and never been asked. I'd say more than half of these times I have traveled on a one-way ticket. If I was asked at immigration I would say that I might be travelling to two possible destinations and will book my outbound flight once I know which country I will travel to. If you have a credit card this shouldn't be a problem. 

 

It is usually airline policy to ask as if there is a problem and you don't get through immigration they are fined and have to fly you back home at their expense.

 

 

I'm not saying that there is no chance of a problem but I myself haven't had any or do I know of anybody being not allowed to enter.

Scoot (flyscoot.com) tickets to SIN are incredibly cheap.... just get one for the end of your visa and throw it away...

They will not ask about it if you are returning with them as they can see the booking.

 

On one occasion I was returning on a different airline and was asked by Qantas for a ticket - an onward ticket from Thailand it might have been. Anyway, they made it clear I would not be checked in without it and I had to go to the Internet kiosk near the counter and pay some ridiculous amount of money to access the Internet for 2 minutes and print out the ticket.

 

Now that I think about it, I can recall being asked several other times about it.

 

I would say that it is Qantas policy at least and you may well be asked.

 

Why not just give the airline call centre a ring? Tell us what they say.

When I moved to Thailand, I got a 60 day * 3 visa from Aussie, then booked a flight before the 60 days to a local destination, about $60. Air Asia.

 

I never used this flight, but it got me my visa.

I always fly Jetstar from Melbourne one way, I look at roughly what date I will fly home and right down that flight number in case I am asked, But never been asked flying into Bangkok or Phuket. These new rules maybe they will ask. But I also think that if the previous stamps show you have done the right thing that does help.

 

But few people saying they have been asked to show return, have they all been on a 60 day?

 

Thanks

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
