Please check this with the airline and try to persuade the immigration authorities about it. You can also contact your embassy in this country, if you need their help.

1 check in bag of up to 23 kg is the free allowance and a hand baggage of 12 kg is also free. This is for economy class passengers. Return journey will also entail same free allowance and you will have to pay for excess baggage for both legs of journey.
