|Subject: Re: open jaw itineraries...impossible??|
It seems that your problem is not really about 'open jaw', which is flying into one place and out of another, but that you want to go there without a return ticket in your hand when you arrive, right?
If this is correct, then I believe this could be a visitors visa issue. Tourists from most countries are allowed to stay up to 3 months without a visa. Longer than that and you need some sort of visa. So, as I understand it, immigration requires that you prove you will be leaving by showing a ticket out of the country when you arrive.
I'd like to throw this out as a work-around and see what everyones opinion is. Could Ed possibly buy a one-way to somewhere within the EU and at the same time buy a super-duper cheap (because he'd never use it) one way to the UK? It seems that would satisfy the EU entry requirements.
