In these days of etickets and OLCI, where can you obtain an OPC before arriving at the terminal?

Maybe from a travel agent?

I always keep a few with me so that I can fill them out prior to arriving at immigration. As the supply dwindles its just a matter of grabbing some next time I go through immigration.

If you don't have one before hitting the airport I find that you can usually fill it in whilst waiting for your boarding passes at check-in and/or in the immigration queue.

Do I remember (or am I dreaming) that you used to get supplied with these mostly filled out?


Cheers,

Like others have said, it's a good idea to grab a handful on the way out.

I also try and maintain a supply of in-bound cards as well along with immigration cards for most of the other countries I tend to visit. I fill the cards in before I leave home.

Doesn't Qantas complete most of your departures card if flying in F and using the SYD or MEL First class check-in?

I usually grab one from the check in desk, then fill it in prior to heading to passport control. For incoming - isn't it distributed onboard your flight?

Back in the days before oneworld when I was top level with QFF in "Gold", I do recall getting both prefilled departure cards ex MEL and ex AKL.
