The immigration officer wont let you in if you show one way ticket on a toruist visa??

Part of the requirement is to proof a return ticket. The I/O might deem it as you wont return hence a possibility of turning u away. Dear please buy a return ticket as it is even cheaper then one-way..

Be warn....

More to the point, many airlines won't let you board the plane to Canada with a one-way ticket unless you have a suitable visa.

Not legally mandatory but if you are a genuine tourist why on earth would you want to do things this way?

Immigration might well ask the same question.

British citizens do not require a visa for entry to Canada. Even for work or study purposes, a permit is needed but a visa is not.

But they need a work permit/study permit/PR visa/etc to board the plane with a one-way ticket with some airlines.

I believe some people said they did, but presumably they have all the TWP paperwork if the airline asks any questions. That's different from flying over as a tourist who is expected to leave within six months.

As previously mentioned it's usually cheaper to buy a return anyway. I'm currently researching flight prices for my landing in Vancouver in January - so far it's coming out much cheaper for the return ticket even though I have no plan to use the return leg.

Out of interest, has anyone found cheaper one way tickets? I'm guessing that it's the charter airlines that sometimes have cheaper one way tickets? I don't think it'll work for me when I go over - I'll need the baggage allowance of a scheduled flight, and anyway I'll be going MAN - YVR which in January is now only possible by using connecting scheduled flights, either KLM via AMS or BA or Air Canada via LHR.

But in answer to the original question, as a tourist I'd definitely make sure I had a return ticket, otherwise convincing immigration that you'll leave could be difficult...

Air Transat was certainly cheaper one-way than return when I flew over last year, despite the huge one-way surcharge they add on. I think the actual ticket was about the same as a return after the surcharge, but the massive taxes that Gordon Brown sticks on top would have made the return about 100 pounds more expensive.
