Baggage allowance

    Recommended Posts

    Recently been told we won't get extra baggage allowance when we migrate, as we have validated our visa. Is this true? If you are migrating I think you should, as when we validated it was a holiday, has anyone any experience of this? We are thinking of using Singapore airlines again.

     

    Thanks april

    Hi, I emailed Singapore airways to check about luggage allowances this is there reply, "if you hold an unused/unstamped/not validated migrant visa that specifically states that you are permitted to remain in Australia indefinitely/permanently, you will be entitled to the double baggage allowance" Think you may be out of luck. Sorry didn't want to be the bearer of bad news.

    We did the same with Singapore, managed to get 40kg allowance - but get it in writing from them by e:mail before you book as speaking to different people they all seem to say different things and constantly give different information.

    The migrant excess of double baggage won't apply as you've validated your visa.

     

    You may get lucky and get them to add an extra few kilos to your luggage but make sure you get proof of this in a letter and take it to the airport with you for check in, otherwise you will be charged.
