Not sure whether this will get any reply. Don't want to start another thread.

I saw one of the requirements that says Bona fide business persons (i.e. those who represent an economically-active business entity). Is there a definite meaning to this?

I do regional (Asia mostly) business development for a UK company, does that consider so?

Your company just write letter can already. I think there's a sample letter at the website. Otherwise just compose a simple one lah.

Depends on country. I have used it in Japan and Vietnam before with family and friends, no issues.

I couldn't in Malaysia, though. Think sometimes gotta see their mood, too.

need to reapply again and pay $100 again.

FYI the card is tagged to your passport number.. so if you get a new passport before the expiry of your apec biz travel card, you also need to pay $100 and reapply a new apec card for your new passport number.

Ok thank you. For $100 and five years seems reasonable. It used to be three years only

"Travels frequently to conduct trade and investment activities in the APEC region"

How frequent is frequent? If not frequent, renew will fail?
