    Default Return ticket. Old theme new question

    We see this subject every once in a while, but my question is this: I have the regularization sticker in my USA passport and left without paying the fine, but when I come back will I need the return ticket, or is this as good as residency when it comes to a return ticket? Anybody have experience with this?

    I'd take the risk and only be prepared to buy an expensive refundable ticket on the spot when flying back.*

    I have found that sticker to be pretty magical, but this being the DR, you never know.

    He only has to worry in the US about demanding a return. No one has ever been refused entry into the DR without a return. And I do mean NO ONE.

    The return ticket is only required by the airline that flies you into the D.R. Since I am a resident, it has never been an issue for me. I frequently purchase only one way tickets when I'm not sure of my travel plans. When the subject is brought up during check-in in the U.S. I simply tell the agent I have D.R. residency and almost never have to provide any evidence. If you have a sticker in your passport, regardless of what it is for, I'm sure that would be more than enough evidence. And as has been mentioned before, as a last resort, buy a one way ticket back at the airport and then cancel it once you are on the plane.

    the return ticket thing is just a way for the air lines to make money always check in curb side if possible.

    No need to buy an expensive refundable ticket any more: pretty much any airline ticket issued in in the US can now be cancelled free of charge within 24 hours of purchase (the date has to be at least 7 days out I think). So, buy any $200 ticket before the flght and cancel it after landing.*

    Any reason this wouldn't work? Buy a bus ticket to Haiti, sell it or toss it.
