Guys, sorry to bombard - feels like alls I do is post on this because I have so many questions - I'm freaking out!!

I'm a 20 year old British, female - intending on travelling through different parts Asia/East Asia for a period of 2/3 months before landing at Australia. I plan on booking my flights ahead but I'm really worrying in case I start getting grilled at immigration and maybe even being denied access for coming and going so quickly?

Maybe I'm just over thinking this but I thought I'd ask just to put my mind at ease.

All advice is appreciated!

I can't remember any border official in asia even speaking to me, they normally just do the paperwork and hand you back your documents.

Relax.

In my experience it is only the USA who ask travellers questions and like to randomly throw their weight about. J

Coming and going quickly is absolutely not an issue...

Relax.

hi!i travel through Asia quite a bit and never had a single sentence with any custom officer,they just look at the passport and a quick glance to see if u match the passport.

As above, don't worry at all, I have done plenty of Asia and never questioned once

If you have all your flights booked, you've got nothing to worry about. Even in cases where onward travel is required, they often don't check. It sounds like you'll have it sorted anyway. Just have all your itineraries printed out so if they do ask you can show that you already have plans to leave the country.

Hope that helps!
