NEXUS Mobile Enrollment Team Coming to Washington, DC

Postponement of Washington, DC and Atlanta NEXUS Enrollment Event

Due to the recent U.S. government shutdown and 3-week continuing resolution of funding until 15 February, US Custom and Border Protection (CBP) will not be able to support the NEXUS event. The Canadian portion of your application has been processed, however; the event cannot be held without the support of CBP.

It will be necessary for you to reschedule your interview after U.S. government operations resume. We are hoping to reschedule the Washington, D.C. and Atlanta events.

NEXUS Mobile Enrollment Team Coming to Washington, DC

Tired of waiting in long lines at airports and idling in your car at border crossings? This is an opportunity to make your travel more efficient and less stressful.

Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will conduct a mobile NEXUS enrollment session in Washington, DC, from February 5 to 7, 2019.

The NEXUS program allows pre-screened travelers expedited processing when entering the U.S. and Canada. Program members use dedicated processing lanes at designated Canada-U.S. land border ports of entry, NEXUS kiosks when entering Canada by air and Global Entry kiosks when entering the U.S.

NEXUS also affords you the benefits of access to the shorter and faster TSA Pre-Check security checkpoint lines for both domestic and international travel. NEXUS members also receive expedited processing at marine reporting locations.

What is NEXUS?

NEXUS is a bi-national, Canada-United States program for pre-approved, low-risk travellers entering Canada or the United States (U.S.) at designated air, land and marine ports of entry. The program enables its members to enter either country more quickly and easily by using automated self-serve kiosks in the air mode of travel, dedicated lanes in the land mode of travel, and by calling Telephone Reporting Centres (TRCs) prior to arrival in the marine mode of travel.

What are the benefits of using NEXUS?

NEXUS members avoid long line-ups and save time using automated self-serve Nexus kiosks at nine Canadian international airports to enter Canada and Global Entry kiosks when entering the U.S. (NEXUS Air). As an added benefit, when travelling on domestic, U.S.-bound, and select international flights, NEXUS members can be expedited through Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) airport security screening lanes located at 16 Canadian airports. Members must present their valid NEXUS card to access the Trusted Traveller CATSA Security Line. NEXUS members who are U.S. citizens, U.S. Lawful Permanent Residents, or Canadian citizens will also receive the benefits of TSA Pre-Check. They can do so by entering their membership number (PASSID) in the “Known Traveler Number” field when booking reservations, or into their frequent flyer profile with the airline. Members also enjoy a quick and simplified entry process using dedicated lanes at 21 designated land border crossings (NEXUS Land). When arriving by boat, members receive expedited processing at designated marine locations by calling a marine telephone reporting centre. (NEXUS Marine)
