I am giving away two Express Arrival Cards for entry into Australia and one Express Departure Card.

An Express Arrival Card gives you priority access to passport checks on international arrivals in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.

If you’ve answered “No” to the customs declaration form, you will also get priority Customs access.

An Express Departure Card will give you priority access to the passport check when you leave Australia.

Who are these cards useful for?

A pair of people traveling in economy to Australia. If you arrive in business or first class, your airline will probably give you a card, so you don’t need these.

That’s how I got my cards, arriving in Sydney in United Global First and Emirates First.

Can I give them away?

I have scoured the cards, and they don’t say anything about transferability, so I will assume they are transferable.

How can you enter?

Leave a comment on this post. I will pick a winner by Monday (2/18) at the latest, since I need to send these out before I leave for Argentina.

And if you don’t win?

Anyone with Global Entry can get priority treatment when landing in Australia and New Zealand. You do have to bring the ID card you got in your Global Entry packet. I never carry it because you don’t need that card to use Global Entry kiosks in the US, so I didn’t get a chance to use New Zealand’s express lane.

Good luck!

Last year I was able to give away several lounge passes, gogo internet passes, a $133 worth of AA gift cards, and more. Some of that was from my own stash, but a lot was donated by generous readers. If you have something travel related that someone else could use, email me, and I will give it away here. (Maybe your expiring SWUs or your AA lounge passes from Citi cards when you already have an AMEX Platinum.)
