Question one-way ticket

Hi,

My mother-in-law is coming to US on 2nd Dec on a one-way ticket, she will be going back around March 09 i.e. in almost 4 months.
As we dont know abt the dates as such of return so we have booked a one-way ticket from India to US.

Will there be any problem due to that at port of entry?

Do she also need to carry travel insurance along with her?

Thanks in advance.

Buy a two way ticket with future date and adjust the later according to her comfort. With one-way ticket, your in-law will have a problem in convincing a POE officer that she will return. Do the math!

1. Cancel your one-way ticket and get a two way ticket with future date
2. Get another one-way return ticket.

Work out a cost difference and decide! for sure, you need to furnish a proof at the port of entry that you will be returning to home country, one of the proofs would be your return ticket.

AFAIK, oneway ticket originating US can't be bought in India. You need to cancel ticket, and buy a return (both way) ticket.

Usually tickets bought in India is cheaper - so there are these restrictions.

It is possible to buy a ticket from US for a journey originationg from India. Airlines passes instruction and Tickets are issues in India.

Rules might have changed, but this was latest information from my side.

Default return ticket

buy a return ticket . Cathay Pacific has tickets valid for a year. They have no change fees etc. so you can change the return date whenever you want.

Default continental didnt allow boarding on one-way tkt

My friend's in-laws were not allowed to board on one-way ticket because they had visitor visa (B2).
They called from airport and he had to book the return ticket rightway to get them boarded.
Check with the airlines..

First of all how did she buy one way ticket. Most IATA makes sure that temporary visa don't get one way ticket.

There are good amount of chances (intend to immigrate) at port.

Plz, this is common sense...don't ever buy one-way ticket if you want to be under the radar...

Default Need a two way ticket.

My mother-in-law had a two way ticket but she was not carrying the e-ticket paper for return ticket, and for that they made her wait 2 hours to verify with the airline that she had a return ticket. So it is VERY Important to have a return ticket, if the visa status is B2 visitor.
