    We filled in the online enquiry form (on website) and they emailed back today to say yes if on 175/6 and it hasnt been used you can get 40kg but have to take proof of visa on flight day- I would email/ring them again. I emailed so I can print there response out so if we have any problems at airport we can argue the point! Flight booked for Jan 8th! cant wait

    Hi we flew with Singapore airlines,, last week!! we had a confirmation email from Singapore airlines, just confirming you could have extra baggage allowance on a 175/176 visa (permanent/not been validated). We just printed out all our confirmation emails to show when checking in!!

    I would give them a ring explain what you guys are doing, there very helpful in manchester airport (not sure where you are flying from), we stayed over in singapore for 3 days, when we checked in again in changi airport, with our 7 suitcase's weight was 160kg all they wanted to look at was a confirmation letter (printed out email) , and all was good... we also had our visas stickers put in our passports as extra proof of visa.. (this only took less than a week, its free ..just need to send it to australian embassy in London). Good luck guys !!!

    If they come backhand say you get 40kg make sure you get it in writing from them. If they say you don't you could try The excess Baggage company we used them and they were very reasonable.

    This subject comes up time and time again.

     

    Make sure you get the approval on an email or in Writing.

     

    You usually have to prove this sort of thing in the early hours of the morning at the airport.
