    Default Travelling on a one way ticket

    I am a Canadian citizen who does not hold Dominican residency.

    Am I able to travel into the country on a one way ticket? I will be visiting in April for three weeks possibly a month. If I am able to find work I would like to stay.

    Thanks,

    curlyq

    From What I have heard it's ok.

    The departing country sometimes asks to see a ticket and if this happens you buy a refundable ticket to go somewhere.

    When you land in the DR they don't ask

    You could probably get a charter return flight for 3 to 4 hundred bucks. Ditch the return. One way would cost you at least double that.

    I have flown with West Jet from Toronto on a one way ticket to the DR many times. Never had a problem and never been asked for a return ticket.

    Default Travelling on a one way ticket

    I've had some good deals looking up aircanada.ca, using "lowest fare" as search criterion.

    And, of course, Immigration doesn't care upon arriving. They'll nail you for taxes and penalties on the way out if you blow your tourist visa time limit.

    Thanks.

    I will be flying out of Toronto on Westjet, they have a seat sale now.

    I have heard conflicting stories about DR immigration possibly asking for a return date, that's why I am concerned. Don't want to run onto any problems. What about immigration in Toronto....any problems there?

    There is ZERO chance of Immigration asking for a return ticket.

    buy a one way ticket online

    check in online before you go or at the kiosk in the airport.

    you just show id to check your luggage.

    no one will ask for your return ticket

    immigration in DR will be more interested in your single status than anything else!
    smile lots and off you go

    Flew in yesterday from Montreal via Toronto. Both my wife and myself had one way tickets. They ask "Imigration card" how long would our stay be. We put down 14 days. BTW WestJet is the BEST. I heard they will be flying to POP all year long. Great news. I just love their baggage policy. 144 lbs free per person and we had it all. LOL
