Apply For NEXUS Card is not affiliated with the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), US Customs & Border Protection (CBP) or the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).
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.
