The NEXUS trusted traveller program allows pre-screened international travelers to have expedited processing through ports of entry and airport lines when entering Canada or the United States. It is a joint program of Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Approved NEXUS members undergo background and security checks and are deemed low-risk travellers by both Canada and the United States and given faster customs and immigration processing when crossing the US/Canada border.
Program members have access to dedicated processing lanes at designated northern border ports of entry and NEXUS kiosks when entering Canada by air and Global Entry kiosks when entering the United States via Canadian Preclearance airports. NEXUS members also receive expedited processing at marine reporting locations.
A NEXUS membership card is a valid document under the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) and can be used in place of a passport if you are flying between the US and Canada.
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) IRCC special immigration procedures, all NEXUS interviews scheduled through May 1, 2020, are postponed and need to be rescheduled.
