U.S. Passport Card / APEC Business Travel Card

U.S. Passport Card

The new wallet-size U.S. Passport Card is a travel document that can be used to enter the United States from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda at land border crossings or sea ports-of-entry. Note that it cannot be used for international air travel. The passport card is more convenient and less expensive than a passport book. To apply for the passport card in Hong Kong, please use the same application forms for an adult passport book or a child’s passport book. There is a check box at the top of the form where you may indicate that you wish to receive a U.S. Passport Card. The Department of State also has provided answers to frequently asked questions about the U.S. Passport Card.

The U.S. APEC Business Travel Card Program is a voluntary program to  facilitate travel for U.S. citizens engaged in verified business in the APEC region and U.S. government officials engaged in APEC business. The U.S. APEC Business Travel Card enables access to fast-track immigration lanes at airports in foreign APEC member economies. Participants must also be members of a CBP trusted traveler program.  To apply for the U.S. APEC Business Travel Card, please visit the Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) website.  To renew the U.S. APEC Business Travel Card, submit a new U.S. APEC Business Travel Card application, pay the program fee, and meet all the eligibility criteria, including maintaining active membership in one of the CBP Trusted Traveler Programs (Global EntryNEXUS or SENTRI).
