How long to get curbside at PER

Hello, I am wondering how long it is going to take to get curbside from landing at Perth International airport at 7:50 AM Friday Feb 20th.

2 US citizens

BKK-PER, on TG483, Thai Aiways business class, no checked luggage

I am trying to figure out whether we can take a ferry direct to rottnest or it'll be better to take a more expensive plane ride there.

No checked luggage? Do you have an e-passport so you can use Smartgate?
I'd say 20 minutes max.

You'd easily make one of these:


09:30 B-Shed Fremantle Rottnest Island BS0930
10:00 Northport Fremantle Rottnest Island PE0830N
11:30 B-Shed Fremantle Rottnest Island BS1130
13:45 Northport Fremantle Rottnest Island NP1345
15:15 B-Shed Fremantle Rottnest Island BS1515

Also, as far as I know, the flights leave from Jandakot airport which is about as far form Perth International as the Fremantle ferry terminal is, so no great gain in going there.

Both of the times I arrived at Perth internationally, immigration processing was very quick with short lines if any.

Perth International Airport, where the motto is, "the line to join that other line starts here".
Definitely go to Rotto by ferry, the earlier the better as the sea breeze can make afternoon crossings sporty.

no e-passport( issued 2005, getting a new one soon after this trip) , Global entry I do not think counts unfortunately.

Thanks for your help guys, I'll just take a ferry.
