Glossary: ABTC

Acronym in full: The APEC Business Travel Card

ABTC was introduced in 1997 to allow fast and efficient travel for business people within the APEC region. Citizens of the APEC participating economies can apply for a ABTC at their national government. The ABTC removes the need to individually apply for visas or entry permits and allows multiple entries into participating economies during the three years the card is valid. Card holders also benefit from faster immigration processing on arrival via access to fast-track entry and exit through special APEC lanes at major airports in participating economies.
