with the US Embassy in the destination country.
APACS in not an S2 function. All APACS concerns are to be directed to
the resources provided during the APACS submission process.
S2 cannot track your APACS. This is why you must add your APACS ID#
to the additional information section of your IATP.
you will need to create and submit an APACS entry to receive your
country and theater clearance, this is required for all foreign country
travel, including driving through Canada.
Your APACS cannot be completed until your initial IATP is submitted.
(you will have an opportunity to make changes to your IATP
submission. If you are unsure on details just submit everything
you can, and S2 will review it.) Do not make major destination,
timeline, or personnel changes to your IATP after your APACS is
submitted. Make those changes to your IATP first, then start
APACS.

Driving by POV
• It will take several days to drive the 2,400 miles between
Alaska and Washington through Canada. IATPs must
include at least 3 consecutive overnight stops in Canada
in order to allow for necessary travel time and adequate rest
for drivers in order to meet regulation safety concerns, and
drivers should refrain from driving for more than 8-hour
intervals.
• Note: You may only have 1 stop if you opt to travel by
ferry. The ferry makes only one stop in Canada,
however this still requires completing an IATP.
• If you are driving by POV through Canada, refer to the list of
common hotels and stops in Canada and use the cities that
your travel route passes through.
• You may use a hotel desk number or your cell phone
number as the lodging phone number.
