Round Trip Ticket to Russia Required??
In attempting to book a one way airline ticket from Los Angeles to Vladivostok as part of my RTW ride this summer, I was told by the ticketing agent that without a round trip or onward ticket from Russia I might be denied boarding, either in LA or Seoul. She said this wasn't definite, but a possibiity. Apparently the airline can be heavily fined if someone arrives in a foreign country, is denied entry, and doesn't have a ticket to leave the country.
Obviously, I would prefer to avoid the cost of a round trip ticket that I would only half use. Has anyone heard of such a thing happening to anyone? Any comments/advice on how to deal with this situation would be greatly appreciated.
