This is the link - if you sign up for an online account with ANZ bank the allowance if you book with Emirates and give them your account number is 50kg per person (and that includes the children).

It was 45kg when we came over in November, we had 19 bags between us and even that didnt come to 45kg each, but it allowed us to pack whatever we needed and not worry about the limit.

So yes there is still an immigration allowance for new migrants coming from abroad (this link applies to those coming from the UK, but they may do something for other countries)

Any problem with the link let me know.

We booked with Emirates for this exact reason. Qantas do a migrant fare but only increase your luggage to 40kg. Emirates standard luggage allowance is 30kg but will increase this to 50kg if young open an online FREEDOM account with ANZ bank (see link on above post). You also get free hotel, transfers, food & visa if long stopover in Dubai (greater than 9 hours). We have 14 1/2 there so are very grateful for this.

Air NZ will let you take up to 3 or 4 extra bags (23kg each) for £75 per piece I think. It comes up if you try & do online booking, but you have to do the whole journey with Air NZ (so UK-LA-NZ, they stop the Hong Kong route this month).

Good luck

I have looked at both, and the price difference for the ticket with Emirates v Air NZ is such that paying air NZ for extra luggage works out about the same i think.

That's good because Emirates came in about £900 cheaper for us. Air NZ were WAY more expensive

Thought this with emirates was really good, then found they don't fly into wellington, we would then get hammered for excess luggage on the internal flight

Woah!!

Must have taken you a week to fish them all off of the the carousel at the other end and make sure all were accounted for!!
Not as bad as it sounds, there were 4 of us (me and the three children), back pack each, carry on each, which left 11 bags, couple of suitcases each and 3 extra large holdalls.

Fitted on 2 trolleys, with a bit of manovering, lovely lady at Auckland (airport employee) who wheeled one of the trolleys for me - children had backpack and wheeley suitcase each, rest on the trolleys.

Yes you are right, did take a while to retrieve it all from the carousel, and then count it all to make sure it was all there. Luckily hubby was outside waiting. and we didnt loose a thing.

Brought a bag full of sheets, etc, another bag with some blow up mattresses and also crockery and cutlery as we were going into rental. to tide us over till the container came. Couple bits got broken but nothing major.

And still had room in the 45kg each if we could have managed it!!!
