I usually have a cheap throw away ticket within the 21 days for departure to cure all problems, whether it be the airline for boarding, or Immigration on arrival for having the onward ticket.  $20 for the peace of mind.

We returned to Cebu on Sept 10,2013 and had no questions about balikbayan status. The Immigration Officer looked at my wife's passport and stamped both of our passports. The stamp now does not say balikbayan as it used to, it it now a blank and BB is handwritten in. Cathay Pacific is also a stickler for onward tickets. Our answer is to buy a full fare refundable ticket to Hong Kong at the check in counter in L.A. about 6 months out and turn it in for a 100% refund when we arrive in Cebu. Tickets purchased here are subject to a $50.00 fee each for a refund. Cathay Pacific knows the game and the office in Cebu is who advised us to do it that way.

Usually Tiger Airways or Air Asia. However, as usual their websites are not cooperating with my two soup cans and string internet connection.
