APEC Business Travel Card is designed for those who travel regularly to conduct trade and investment activities in the APEC region. This Card was developed in response to the need for business people to gain streamlined entry into the economies of the Asia-Pacific region. This enables business people to explore new business opportunities, attend meetings, and conduct trade and investment activities.
No need to individually apply for visas or entry permits each time you travel to any of the participating APEC economies as the card is your visa. There are 19 economies currently participating in the ABTC Scheme: Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, China, Hong Kong (China), Indonesia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Republic of the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Thailand and Vietnam. The United States of America and Canada are currently transitional members of the scheme.
