The APEC business trip card which provides services only for state-own and private enterprises will also be given out to foreign and joint venture enterprises in Zhongguancun pilot area in the future.

People holding APEC card can go in and out of the APEC economic entities at all times and enjoy a fast track with a longest stay for two months, during the three-year time period.

Li Baochun, director of the Exit and Entry Administrative Office of Foreign Affairs Office of the People's Government of Beijing Municipality, said that the APEC business trip card equals to a three-year visa valid in many countries by many times. The applicant with the APEC card and a valid passport can freely enter into the APEC economic entities at any time within three years.

The fast track is set up in the main exit and entry ports of the economic entities so that cardholders can pass quickly. About twenty APEC members joined in the business trip card plan including Japan, Singapore, Korea and Australia, except Russia.

Originally, only personnel of the state-own and local private enterprises are eligible to apply for the APEC business trip card. Since the Foreign Affairs Office of the People's Government of Beijing Municipality made a survey in Zhongguancun, they found that with the development of Zhongguancun pilot area, more and more foreign enterprises and joint ventures are urgent for the APEC business trip card.
