    MEL F Lounge Additional (Second) Guest

    On a trip MEL-LAX-JFK.

    APEC Business Travel Card - Express Immigration Clearance

    With passport & APEC card you should be fine. If anyone wanted to get a quick visa, the chance of getting one within a week is almost nil pre Olympics.

    Express Path - sped up (outbound) immigration/security Screening at Intl airports

    Flying as *G in biz class on Thai I didn't get an express card. When I asked the immigration officer what the fasttrack was she said it was for people running late for their flight.
