Here is the rub, the officials here need round trip tickets as part of the paperwork. I obviously dont have set dates.. Short of forgery, any way buy fully refundable tickets online or have ones with flexible dates that i can adjust prior to trip?
Have you checked any of the travel or airline direct booking websites?
As far as I know, most international airlines offer fully refundable tickets,
with no or varying charges to change dates once booked.
As just one example, American, Airline Reservations And Airline Tickets From American Airlines | AA.com
, displays an "Economy Flexible"
fare between Chicago->Buenos Aires, that is "refundable" with no or variable
charge to change dates.
Of course "fully refundable" is usually (much) more expensive than a non-refundable in either economy or business class.
If it's confusing or uncertain to you on the websites, call and talk to a
booking or airline agent.
