The United States and Canada are two members that participate in the APEC program. The American and Canadian APEC cardholders can use expedited immigration when they visit the APEC participating countries. However, they must have a US and Canada visa when they visit these two countries. In the US, the Customs and Border Protection is the government agency that handles the application process for the APEC.
The APEC has the same size as a credit card, and it contains the cardholder’s name, date of birth, sex, home economy/country, expiry date, signature, and passport number. No country or nationality is on the card. Business travelers can also get APEC for 5 years. A person of a third party country can apply for an APEC card, and the costs of applying for the APEC is different from country to country.
