The statistics of particles incident on a beam splitter has important applications in quantum protocols such as teleportation or Bell state analysis. We study particle pairs with multiple degrees of freedom in terms of exchange symmetry and show that the particle statistics at a beam splitter can be controlled for suitably chosen states. We propose an experimental test of these ideas using orbital angular momentum entangled photons.
