The total weight of the carry-on baggage for one traveler should not exceed five kilograms (11 pounds) and holders of First-Class ticket are allowed to carry two pieces. The volume of each piece should be less than 20X40X55 in centimeter (7.8X15.7X21.6 in inch). Anything exceeding the limit should be taken as consignment baggage.

    i want to go hongkong & china for business visit 10 to 12 days can i need visa . can i carry some small spare parts with me

    • Rechael :2011/6/22 19:49:00

      India passport holders are exempt from Hong kong visa for 14 days, so you don't need a Hong Kong visa. but if you go to mainland China, you need to apply for a business visa.
      you can take the spare parts, but do remember to declare them.
