I'm studying in Dublin and I'm Indonesian. I bought a return flight from Dublin to Jakarta, and I have a problem with my return flight to Dublin. The ticket I bought requires an airport change, from Heathrow to Gatwick, and, for that I would need a visa.
I called SQ and asked whether I can change the London-Dublin ticket so that I can fly out from Heathrow. They can't change just that portion; they need to change the whole ticket and that would be quite expensive.
They recommended that I buy a separate ticket on Aer Lingus to fly directly from Heathrow to Dublin. However, I will need to get my luggage and re-check it with Aer Lingus.
If I do this, will I need a transit visa because my luggage wouldn't be going through from Jakarta to Dublin.
