Is it possible to get the APEC Business Travel Card as a Canadian living in Asia?

    To clarify, what are you counting as where you're living in Asia? Eg Russia, India, Thailand, Japan...? – Mark Mayo Mar 19 '14 at 11:53

As far as I know, it's only possible if you are a permanent resident in Hong Kong (and then it doesn't matter that Canada is a member of APEC, UK citizens and others can get one too). According to Wikipedia, Canada does not issue cards yet and I think other members only issue them to citizens.

  • Ah yes, I think you're right. My Canadian friend has the card but he is also permanent resident of HK. – Olivier Lalonde Mar 19 '14 at 11:57

    Yes, Canada is only a partial member currently, and is not issuing the cards yet. I've been told this year or next, but i'm not holding my breath. – Kevin Willock Mar 20 '14 at 7:07
