New member here, Tom from Canada, 20 years old and have been on the road through europe in one way or another for the last 7 months. Will be flying into Lebanon in a month to do some sort of bicycle tour of the region. (Hopefully into Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, then exit through Israel, but just a rough idea).
I read something about being held back at the airport flying out of england because the guy had a one way ticket into Lebanon and would not be granted the tourist visa on arrivial because he couldn't prove his exit of Lebanon.
I am a little worried about this as I will be flying on a one way ticket, and then ultimatly exiting the region by another means, possibly biking all the way back to Europe, but it is not planned at this point and still open.
I've done some looking around but haven't come up with anything yet. What countries in the middle east require proof of exit before they let you in? Is there any other way to prove exit? So far from my research I believe all my visa's can be bought at the border. Syria requires that I have one before, but I have not been in Canada for some time and am not able to apply for that visa, and I have read that it can be bought at the border despite what the website says.
Thanks for any info. Best, Tom
