How To Apply

Participating economies

There are twenty one APEC economies currently participating in the ABTC Scheme. Cardholders are also entitled to access 'fast-track' immigration lanes (which in most instances is the air-crew lane) upon entry in the United States and Canada but will still need to present valid passports and visas if required by existing United States law and Canadian law.

You can access online application forms and contact details for your home economy below or to check the status of your ABTC application regarding the economies that have given you a pre-clearance.

Please note: not all economies are currently able to provide the 'application status check' facility.
