The APEC Business Travel Card is a travel document issued to business travellers who are citizens of APEC participating economies.Valid for five years, the card eliminates the need for its holder to possess a visa when visiting other APEC participating economies as long as pre-clearance has been obtained during the application process.The Machine-readable strip starts with "CP", followed by the abbreviation of the issuing economy.The abbreviations are in conformation with the 3-letter ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 country codes.
However, they qualify for expedited visa appointment procedures for those economies which require visas for Canadian citizens, and use of specially marked ABTC lanes at airports.
The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Business Travel Cards Act (Pub. 112–54) was passed in November 2011 to authorize the issue of ABTCs to US travellers until September 2018. Applicants for ABTCs must already be enrolled in Global Entry, NEXUS, or SENTRI.
In May 2014, the Department of Homeland Security published an interim final rule regarding the issuance of ABTCs to U. As the United States is only a transitional member of the ABTC scheme and does not grant any visa waiver to ABTC holders from other economies, U. citizens reciprocally do not enjoy any additional visa-free travel through the ABTC scheme.
For applications made after September 2015, the card is valid for five years (previously 3 years), after which a fresh application must be made.
If the holder's passport is renewed during the 5 year validity period, the card must be reissued to reflect the new passport number.
