The NEXUS started after the 9/11 crisis. It took a long time to cross the border. The US and Canada set up the Trusted Traveler Program. This speeds low-risk travelers across the border. US and Canadian citizens and permanent residents from both countries can apply.
First, the govt makes strict background checks on all applicants. This ensures that all members are low-risk. Canadian and U.S. government agencies carry our security checks on every applicant. This includes law enforcement, immigration, customs, the department of motor vehicles, etc. Each agency receives the personal details from your NEXUS form.
It takes time for each agency to check this information. Consequently, there’s no shortcut to the checks. As a result, no third party can speed up the process. Even NEXUS renewal applicants are rechecked because a lot can change in five years. It takes up to 6-8 months to reach the interview stage. Sometimes the process takes longer.
These checks keep the borders protected.
You must take the following documents with you to your interview. Additionally, you should also check your Conditional Approval letter. This will give you the full list of documentation.
A valid passport. If you hold more than one passport, you must bring all passports to the interview. The interviewing officer inspects them and adds a copy to your file .
Proof of residency e.g. a valid driver’s license. This must show your current address on it. Otherwise a mortgage or rental payment statement, or a utility bill, will suffice. Child applicants do not need to provide this information.
A permanent resident card (if applicable) and relevant entry visas to the U.S. or Canada.
