BAJANT

At BGI? I've never heard of such a service. AFAIK, all travellers, unless VIP, have to queue at the main Customs area. It could only be, paying a red cap who is friends with a particular officer to get your through the airport quicker...

Based on what I'm reading...you still have to queue at Customs like anyone else... as it pertains to the Immigration Fast Track, they are probably using the queue for Diplomats/Cabin Crew/Wheelchair Passengers...

Is that worth $75 USD? Only if someone else is paying I'd say.
