    Hi ya I might have gotten this all wrong, but for some reason I am lead to believe that if you are making your first trip (validation) to Auz travelleing by Quantas you are given some addtional baggage allowance.

    Hi Bet

    Most of the airlines (but check out the one you intend to use), give a 40kg baggage allowance to those emigrating with a PR visa, you can only use this once though. Check with the airline concerned.

     

    For those going on an SIR, we are flying with Singapore Air and they have agreed an increased baggage allowance, upto 30kgs per person, as we are emigrating but on a provisional/temp visa.

     

    Also there are special migrant fares ( very expensive though) that give extra baggage allowance.

    If you fly via America, you can take 2 pieces of luggage weighing 32kg each. That is what I just did...plus it broke up the journey. I don't know why going through Asia you are only allowed 1 piece of 20kg. Not sure about rules for Permanent Residency Visa holders though.

        Hi guys
        Can anyone help with this question (as I can't find anything on the Etihad website!).  We are moving from Manchester to Brisbane on a PR visa in September 2017.  We have 42,000 guest miles with Etihad.  Ideally I want to use some of these to take an extra suitcase(s) with us but I've been told that we won't know how many miles we need for an extra bag until we book the flight and have a booking reference.
        We are sending the majority of our stuff over by sea in a movecube in the next few weeks and if I can't use the air miles to take the extra case I will obviously need to factor in sending more stuff in the movecube. Why can't Etihad just state an extra suitcase is 30,000 miles or whatever it is!! Does anyone know the answer?  We have a 3 year old child so the idea was to take a suitcase of toys so she has familiar things around her when we arrive - if not it's a 3.5 month wait before it arrives by sea.
        Thanks!
