Our team knows the appointment booking system inside out and will monitor available appointments, cancellations and other changes so that you can get your card faster.

Please complete the order form and application forms in the pdf.

Email or fax in your application

It’s better to apply in the winter, late autumn or early spring. So, if you can wait until the right time, send your application to us during the winter, instead of during the summer.

We Will Contact You

Our dedicated team will contact you regarding your application and your preferred interview date.
If you have not been contacted about your preferred interview date, please contact our office at 1-855-760-0888 to confirm we have received your order and that we are booking you an early appointment.

We’ll review and submit your application

We’ll review your application for eligibility and accuracy and submit the application to the CBSA and CBP through the GOES system.
If you are not eligible for an expedited interview you will not have to pay the additional fee.

Attend your NEXUS Interview

Attend your interview at the enrolment centre most convenient for you. If you are flexible and can travel to more than one enrolment centre, there is a much better chance of an early appointment. There are 25 enrolment centres along the US-Canadian border and at Canadian international airports and the more flexible you are, the more likely we can book you an interview within days of conditional approval. See the complete list of enrolment centres.

Timeline: How long does it take?

4-12 Weeks
Applying for a NEXUS Card is a 3-step process, only one of which can be sped up:
  1. initial screening – takes anywhere from 1-10 weeks, depending on the time of year you apply (wait times are much longer during the driving season);
  2. interview – if you opt for urgent service, we’ll get you an appointment within a few days to a week in most cases, especially if you are willing to attend any enrolment centre; otherwise the appointment could take up to a month or two, depending upon the time of year and the enrolment centre you wish to attend;
  3. receiving your card – takes about 10 calendar days.
Urgent Processing
Border Cards will book your appointment at the enrolment centre of your choice at the soonest available a time. We will notify you of cancellations and new interview time-slots so you can get your card sooner.

Why You Should Have a NEXUS Card

What You Cannot Use NEXUS Card for

  • Your NEXUS Card cannot be used as a passport substitute when travelling internationally on a commercial vehicle (plane, train, bus or cruiseship/ferry).
  • Your NEXUS Card cannot be used as photo ID for any agency that does recognize it as proof of identification.
  • Your NEXUS Card cannot be used in place of a SENTRI Card, Global Entry Card or FAST Card.
  • Your NEXUS Card is not recognized by governments other than the US and Canada and cannot be used for travel outside of these two countries.
  • Your NEXUS Card cannot be used by other people, including if they are accompanying you in your car.

What You Can Use Your NEXUS Card for

  • Use your NEXUS Card at NEXUS member-only security lanes to get through airport security faster; at most major international airports in Canada and numerous airports in the US.
  • Use your NEXUS Card to get through customs faster, using NEXUS-only kiosks at the major Canadian airports and at Global Entry-equipped airports in the United States;
  • Use your NEXUS Card to make use of NEXUS-only lanes at most major Canada-US border crossings, and at the NEXUS-only Whirlpool bridge at Niagara Falls;
  • Use your NEXUS Card to avoid reporting to inspection stations when travelling between the US and Canada by pleasure craft.

Common questions

Neither the Canadian government nor the US government recognize any reasons for processing a NEXUS Card application urgently. The initial processing time for your “conditional approval” will take as long as it takes: a few weeks to a few months, depending upon the time of year and the backlog.

Your interview, appointment, on the other hand, can be sped up. Border Cards can help you get the earliest appointment possible, rather than you having to wait a couple more weeks for your interview.

There is no way to speed up the creation of the card itself. It is always mailed out to you; you cannot pick it up in person and you cannot have it couriered. The usual wait is 10 days.

The only part of the process that can be sped up is the interview. Your initial approval and the mailing of the card cannot be sped up.

In order to get an interview that is sooner, you’ll have to constantly monitor the GOES interview booking system to see if there are any cancellations, or check other nearby enrolment centres for earlier dates. The Border Cards team has years of experience with the GOES system. We can monitor earlier dates and times for you and get you the earliest appointment possible.

Simply put, the fastest way to get your NEXUS Card is to apply in December, around Christmas time. Relatively few people apply then and the initial approval process – which cannot be expedited – is much, much shorter. We’ve seen applications conditionally approved in as little as 2 weeks. Applying in late November, or in January or February is also good, though it takes a little longer.

Regardless of when you apply, you’ll need to get the earliest appointment possible, by monitoring the enrolment centre nearest you for cancellations, and checking any other nearby enrolment centres for earlier dates. Border Cards can do that for you. We’ll get your card fast.
