I am planning my itinery for my trip in July.

I will most likely be going from KL to Bangkok and will be spending a decent amount of time in Thailand and then overland to Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam and finally flying out of Saigon or Hanoi to OZ.

When looking at all of the visa info i keep seeing that you need to be able to show a return flight ticket on entering countries. Anyone know if you get round this as i want to minimise flights where possible.

I spent 3 months doing a similar route, and never got asked once for a return ticket, and I have never heard of anyone being asked.

I was asked for proof of onward travel when I entered Indonesia (Thai Airways asked me for proof on departure from India). In Thailand, Malaysia, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia, I was not asked.

My friend entered Suvarnabhumi twice in the last few months. Big sign says have: passport, boarding pass, entry card and return ticket ready. Immigration never ask for a return ticket either time. The Thai Immigration officers can, but they just don't most of the time. Cambodia could care less, they just want to overcharge you for their visa. VietNam will ask you where you are going to enter and exit their country, but they do not require a flight out. I arrived via air to HaNoi and exited overland via the Moc Bai/Bavet border between VN & Cam. No problem. Relax and enjoy your holiday in SEA.
