Proof of onward travel
Listen “technically” any country you enter you need proof of onward travel.
But I have nevvverrr been asked this, Mostly depends on the officer at immigration. I’m 90% sure you will not be asked about this.
If they do assure them you are going to take bus to the nearest country by bus before your 30 day visa exempt pass expires.
And worst comes to worst, if you really get an asshole officer that has nothing better to do. Which I seriously highly doubt this. And for some reason need actual proof of onward travel, go online and buy 2$ bus ticket from Thailand boarder to Cambodia.
That’s worst case scenario. You’ll loose 2$ lol.
Really doubt anyone is going to ask you.
Airports are stricter than I thought. Be ready to show proof of onward travel. Maybe even a Bank Statement!?
You can also go online and book a holding ticket. This will show that you have paid and have flight to next country. When really it is just reservation, and you do not have to buy actual ticket.
