COVID-19 update: Temporary closures

Visit COVID-19: Current border measures and requirements for information about the temporary closure of NEXUS and FAST enrollment centres, rescheduling appointments and membership renewals.

This is the official Government of Canada NEXUS application website.

NEXUS is designed to speed up border crossings for low-risk, pre-approved travellers into Canada and the United States (U.S.). It is jointly run by the Canada Border Services Agency and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. More benefits of NEXUS.

The NEXUS application processing fee is a non-refundable $50 (US) for a five-year membership. Children under 18 are free!

Using a third party representative? Things you should know

There is no need to have a third party complete your NEXUS application. Doing so may result in additional charges, which are not included in the $50 NEXUS fee. All applications are processed at the same rate, whether you submit an application or someone does it on your behalf.

What are the benefits?

  • Avoid long line-ups and save time by:
    • using automated self-serve NEXUS kiosks when entering Canada at nine major international airports and U.S. Global Entry kiosks for entry into the U.S.
    • receiving expedited clearance through security screening lines at major and select mid-sized airports in Canada;
    • receiving expedited clearance through the U.S. Transportation Security Administration Pre-Check lines at over 200 participating U.S. airports. Visit NEXUS Air for more information.
  • Enjoy a simplified entry process using dedicated vehicle lanes at 21 designated land border crossings. Visit NEXUS Land for more information.
  • When arriving to Canada by boat, report by phone to a Telephone Reporting Centre at more than 450 marine sites across Canada. Visit NEXUS Marine for more information.
