Common questions

A NEXUS Card is a “trusted traveller” document for use for travel between Canada and the United States. The card certifies the bearer as a traveller who has been certified as low-risk. The card allows you to use special security lines at airports, special customs kiosks and special lanes at Canada-US border crossings. There is a NEXUS-only bridge in Niagara Falls. The card also allows boaters to travel between the US and Canada with less hassle.

To get a NEXUS Card, you have to prove to both CBSA and US CBP that you are not a travel risk. You must complete an application and submit proofs of identity and citizenship (and status, if applicable) to verify you are who you say you are. You must also attend an interview corroborate everything you said on your application.

The time it takes to get a NEXUS Card depends upon the time of year and which enrolment centre you are able to attend. Applications can be pre-approved within as little as a week or as long as 10 weeks. Interviews can be scheduled within days but can also take weeks or even months, depending on how busy the enrolment centre is.

Note: In our experience, summer is the busiest time for NEXUS applications and the waiting times are longest between May and September.

I engaged the Border Cards to assist me with the process of acquiring a NEXUS Card for Can-US travel. My experience was one of complete satisfaction. The team completed the application forms for me, submitted the completed forms to the Canadian and US systems and finally arranged an interview with both Customs and immigration sides on my behalf. I in fact was offered 3 different "last minute" interviews from others who had cancelled their own appointments. The third offered interview worked in my schedule and I proceeded to Pearson airport for my interview. This was all done in a short period of time. The interview process is in fact very easy and took less than 30 minutes to complete both the Canadian and US meetings with the respective officers. The actual NEXUS Card is mailed ato the applicant in 7 business days. I found the whole process very easy. I am happy to endorse the efforts of the Border Cards with regards to acquiring a NEXUS Card. The grou is very proficient in this area. Well done and many thanks.

I applied for a Nexus card thru Border Cards, not only was it easy to deal with them but also very pleasant and the staff are out going and enjoy helping their customers.
