I have had 2 since 2001. because everytime u change your passport no u need to get a new one( Pssport no is for those who getadditional booklets) U have to apply at the immigration tower i think the 4th fl, U need to fill the form, your company letter why u are applying for APEC card.If u have travelle dpreviously to the participatingc ountries their old visa, If u are currently doing any business with anyone from these countries copy of invoices.. You need to be HKPR.
It takes about 2-3 months for the card to come. Then also u get certain countries an certain countries reject you and teh card is valid for 3 years from date of application.
Though there are 21 countries in APEC but all dont have the APEC card.U can easily get Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, HKG, South Korea, JAPAN, tHAILAND, sINGAPORE Chile, Peru, Bruenei.
Malaysia is also giving u access. I dont have singapore.
It is very convient as u can go thru APEC lines in immigration , but sometimes as it is not that common some countries take longer to process. I remember going to Perul immigration didnt know what it was and he asked me to wait the airport became empty and then he found outthat I didnt need a visa with APECCard. Also initially I was refused to board the flight out of Miami to Chile as dumb airlines( United) didnt know what it was. But now things are much better
Worth it if u travel to these countries and not have HK SAR passport or European or American passports
