I have chatted to Lisa and I know she was able to get the extra allowance on the SIR visa but has anyone else managed it? I have called the booking agent and they have said that I don't need to have any 'notes' put on my ticket and that I just turn up and flash the visa. They did say that it had to be a perm visa which is where I think I will come unstuck. I think that I may just chance it, and if not I'll have to leave a suitcase here for shipping at a later date - it's all so complicated!!!
Any replies would be good!!
