Travelling on a oneway ticket

edited August 2009 in - Southern Africa
Hi - I am planning to visit South Africa next summer for the Football World Cup and I understand that a return ticket is a requirement for entry. I wish to have some flexibility for my return as I will leave as soon as my team is knocked out, but flexible return tickets are too expensive for me. I want to travel on a one way ticket and buy a return locally in South Africa when I know my travel date. What guarantees do I need to get in order to do this?
Thank you for your help.

    Hi Waltechr

    What passport are you travelling on?
    I think the only way you would be able to resolve this is to check with the South African Embassy in your country of residence. As they issue visas/ entry permits, they are in the position to advise on your necessary travel requirements to South Africa.

    I am on a UK passport so do not require a visa... I can try the embassy unless anyone else knows something?

    A flexible return ticket will be a cheaper option than 2 one -way tickets and save you the hassle.
