We plan to come next Feb for a little over a month. i know we can get an extension on the 30 day rule by going to the immigration office, my question is, do I need to book tickets for the original 30 days and then change in order to be admitted to the country? I know you have to have a purchase made when entering stating when exiting. Anyone with experience on this. Traveling w/ toddlers, so don't really want to leave this to chance and get held up!!!

One man's experience:

I've flown back & forth (as a resident from the U.S.) more than a half-dozen times over
the last two years, and was not ONCE ever asked to produce proof of a return plane ticket.

For what it's worth ....

Exactly, I've purchased one way tickets often....Using both American Airlines and at the time Continental.....I was not questioned about the return.....However, when filling out your immigration documents you might choose to include a return date within the 30 days as to not cause delays with the officers....... Wishing you well.... smile

Ok, sounds good. Thanks! Will see you again. We brought the family that took care of us the first time we visited for a birthday dinner when we were there in June. Was a great treat. Will bring hubby and the twins when we make it back in Feb!

Ok, I haven't either...just didn't want have issue. I purchased one way so far as using up miles on American. Waiting until I have enough miles to purchase return trip and just didn't know if I needed to make for one date and then change it. Will give it a shot!

I've never had a problem with Immigration but I *have* had problems, several times with Delta. They let you buy the one way ticket but then can make life really hard when you go to check in. I have always been able to successfully talk my way on to the plane but it's been pretty unpleasant. I live full time in Belize and have legal residency. I explained to one gate agent that I was traveling on the second half of a round trip ticket and he demanded to know when my passport expired because he wanted me to book a return trip to apply for a new one.

Maybe for the Delta it's an upselling opportunity.
