Description

This compendium seeks to promote standards-sharing among APEC member economies by providing a point of reference for specialized visa programs in the region, while highlighting the need for more centralized information regarding these programs in APEC, as the Human Resources Development Working Group (HRDWG) and the Business Mobility Group (BMG) detected a need for more accessible information on skilled mobility visa programs.

In a context of increasing flows of skilled people among member economies, it is necessary to provide all APEC economies an easy and centralized system to share information. The compendium identifies trends in the skilled work visa information provided by member economies and offers a set of recommendations to enhance regional cooperation and skilled labor mobility in the APEC region.
