给各位常旅客介绍一下APEC卡

APEC卡可能很多人都了解过,入境很多国家的时候都会看到一个叫“礼遇通道”的东西
这个就是给外交护照/APEC卡等持有者准备的

虽然美加发的卡没法增加免签,但是美国护照和加拿大护照已经免签很多了,这卡可以大大加快入境速度。目前澳大利亚、泰国、韩国、巴布亚新几内亚允许非商务目的旅行。
在美国申请APEC卡的步骤是:

第一步你需要先成为美国公民
第二步你需要先成为TTP会员(SENTRI, NEXUS, or Global Entry)
第三步在TTP的账号里面选择申请APEC卡,这个选项只有你在通过TTP以后才可以看到。
加拿大和美国共用一个发放系统,所以加拿大公民也需要登录TTP账号才能看到APEC卡申请
至于这张卡有什么好处
就是入境中国的时候可以跟全国人大代表政协委员走一条道

各国的边检机场基本都有这条线

然而美国和加拿大发的APEC卡虽然可以走礼遇通道,但是并没有免签的待遇。其他APEC成员国发的才有免签福利。

明显有这个规定:

Can I use my U.S. APEC Business Travel Card for personal travel, such as vacation?

No. The APEC Business Travel Card is for members who travel frequently on short-term visits within the APEC region to fulfill business commitments. To use the U.S. APEC Business Travel Card, you must be traveling solely for business purposes to the foreign APEC economy.

而且eligibility里你漏了一条可能是最重要的:

Eligibility for the U.S. APEC Business Travel Card

Am I eligible for the U.S. APEC Business Travel Card?

To be eligible for the U.S. APEC Business Travel Card Program, you must meet three criteria:

  • you must be a U.S. citizen;
  • you must be an existing member in good standing or be approved for membership in a CBP trusted traveler program (SENTRI, NEXUS, or Global Entry) during the U.S. APEC Business Travel Card application process, , meaning they will go through a thorough vetting process including a review of all relevant national security and criminal databases prior to enrollment;
  • you must be either a verified business person, or a U.S. government official, who is actively engaged in APEC business.

这个verified普通人怎么verify?
