APEC Business Travel Card
The Asia–Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Business Travel Card (ABTC) offers faster and easier entry to some Asia-Pacific economies, and fast-track entry and exit lanes for ABTC holders at many international airports.
As an accredited Trusted Trader, you will automatically satisfy some criteria for the ABTC if:
you are a senior business person, relative to the structure of the nominating business, and
you undertake frequent travel for business purposes
Streamlined applications arrangements are available to these applicants, who also meet the ABTC individual identity and criminal history requirements as long as they:
note in the ABTC application that the sponsoring business is a Trusted Trader (by adding “ATT” in the Business Details section, ahead of the Legal registered name)
provide the Australian Business Number, and
are an Australian citizen employee of the Trusted Trader
If your application is successful, we issue you with an ABTC which lists your passport details and the places you can enter and stay without needing to apply for a separate visa.
