Would DC embassy approve my visa?

Recommended Posts

I was just in thailand on a tourist visa, and I applied for my tourist visa by the mail and they require to see your flight information. I had a 3 month roundtrip and that got accepted. Next time I want to go for 5 months. Ubonjoe said that they accept a flight out of thailand within 3 months. I plan on using a fake ticket from something like bestonwardticket.com . So I plan on sending them both my 5month roundtrip flight, and also a flight out of thailand with a ticket from bestonwardticket. Would they approve my visa, or would they decline it seeing as my roundtrip is 5 months? If they would decline it, then what I'd plan on doing is showing up at the airport and getting a visa excemption, and show a ticket from bestonwardticket if asked for my onward travel.

Having the round trip ticket and a one way ticket out within 3 months would be accepted.

Yeah, use fake tickets! That will be good for all future changes to the worse, when Immigration finally catch up with the wide spread use of those. Thank you for your kind gesture to make things better, Sir.

For some it is a practical solution to an immigration created problem. It is no more of a problem than buying a very cheap, real ticket that you have no intention of using or of getting a full-fare, fully refundable ticket that you turn in after getting through immigration. 

 

In my case, when I come back from the US in January, I will come in visa exempt. When I get here, I head directly to CM, get my paperwork in order for a non-O in Laos, and then head out on my motorcycle. I'll be exiting Thailand well before the 30 days is up and will have no need for a flight ticket out. While I could do as the OP suggested and use something like bestonwardticket.com, I am too cheap. I'll most likely just get a full-fare, fully refundable ticket and turn it in as soon as I clear immigration at Bangkok. Any of the three methods result in the same outcome.

You can show both tickets.

so instead of paying 12 usd for the fake ticket, you buy a real one, and refund it? could you tell me how to find refundable tickets? ive only ever bought tickets on sites like skyscanner/expedia and i dont think ive ever been able to refund.

Almost all regular airlines (not the low cost ones like Air Asia) sell full fair tickets that are fully refundable. Just make sure you check the information before you purchase it. Also look for airlines that don't have any administrative fees for refunds.

I haven't done it in a while but I booked direct with Korean Air. Refund was easy and no fee. As I note, it has been a while and things have changed. Make sure you read the fine print.

Have you checked the Air Asia or Lion Air websites for a one way ticket to any nearby country and from any airport here.

You can find very low fares purchased in advance.

Air Asia will refund the taxes paid for when the ticket was purchased. In some cases that is about half the cost of it.

so in order to get refunds on flights you have to go directly to the airline's websites? i always book on expedia/skyscanner and have never seen how you can refund

You can still get a refund if you buy it through an agency.

The ticket is still issued by the airline. You just have to look at their terms and conditions.
