Preparing your luggage
Make sure that you have in your hand luggage all the neccessary documents ready for the Immigration control at the AIRPORT or port of entry including your invitation letter.
Check with your Airline as to the baggage allowance and weight limit for your luggage. Remember not to make it too heavy as you will probably have to carry it with you to your accomodation when you first arrive here.
