Hello,
I found this info video informing patients about UA's international arrivals procedures at LAX (with lots of links to similar videos). It raises a few questions.

As I recall, passport control is under terminal 7, near where the old tunnel to the satellite reaches the street.

The video talks about a moving sidewalk to international baggage claim. Isn't international baggage claim between terminals 6 and 7 along the street, and if so, isn't it close enough that a moving sidewalk isn't needed?

Also, are passport control and international baggage claim in different rooms?

Thanks in advance!

Quoting UCLAX (Thread starter):

Yes under T-7, however roughly under rotunda more towards the T-6/7 alley way.
Definately not street side.

Baggage claim is parallel to street side with its exit in T-6.

Yes, connected by the moving walkway.

Thanks! Do passengers arriving at T6 take the old tunnel from 6 to 7 to get to passport control?
When passing through passport control, are passengers moving north, east, or west?

Also, is the decor more like Terminal 6 or the "new" terminal 7?

Thanks again!

Yes, the old tunnel basically dumps right into FIS. However the way I picture things is that a good portion of the tunnel was removed as FIS is not square center under T-7, but closer to the alley under T-6 & 7.

Well once in passport control area there are snaking lines that have passengers flow North towards the inspection booths.
When passengers clear, they walk a bit of a dog leg to the right (East - around the back side of the booths) to exit the room, then left(North) down the moving walkway towards the street side baggage claim. There are 3-4 carousels with passengers moving westward, and exit under T-6.

Decor wise the passport area is more stale with white/gray walls and blueish booths as I recall while baggage claim looks more UA'ish and T-7.
