Nevans has indicated that this thread is about Peru

Hi all ,

In utter ignorance I booked a one way ticket to Peru to holiday both there and onward to Bolovia , Chile , Argentina and Brazil. I then realised that like the states some countries require an exit airline ticket too , is this the case in S.A , especially in Peru ??

Thanks Guys

IS ISNT NECESARY TO HAVE A RETURN TICKET. YOU CAN HAVE YOUR TICKET FROM THE USA TO LIMA AND FROM LIMA TO ANY COUNTRY YOU DECIDE. YOU CAN STAY HERE IN LIMA FOR 6 MONTHS WITHOUT ANY KIND OF VISA

BEST REGARDS

The other poster is right. Even though to my knowledge Peru (as most other SA countries) has proof of onward journey as an official entry requirement, it is never checked. And íf it is, you most likely get away with showing your credit card as proof of sufficient financial means.

hey

when we started in Lima my mate only had a one way flight ticket, back in the UK when she went to check in BA forced her to buy a return ticket saying she couldnt get in if she didnt. That was rubbish as no one even checked in Lima, she was able to get her money back on the return ticket as she sent it back to BA from Lima however.

Hi Nevans,

I had a single ticket into Peru and had no problems. They made more of a fuss about it at the check-in desk in Kennedy Airport in NYC than they did in Peru where no-one batted an eyelid.

I think they are well used to people arriving and travelling on by land. I wouldn't worry. :)

Good luck

Thanks guys , you were spot on , TACA airlines in LA wouldn't let me leave without a return ticket , but ask me if the Peruvian official gave a hoot at all ...

Thanks once more
