Travel Handbook

This APEC Business Travel Handbook is intended to assist business people who travel in the Asia-Pacific region by providing a quick reference guide to the visa and entry requirements of APEC member economies. The electronic Handbook also provides contact details for the embassies, consulates and other visa-issuing agencies of each member economy. The information in this Handbook remains the sole responsibility of the respective APEC member economy that provided it. The APEC Secretariat itself has no responsibility for its accuracy or comprehensiveness. Additional or more detailed information on individual economies’ visa laws and regulations can be obtained through their overseas diplomatic missions and central immigration agencies.
