NEXUS is designed to expedite the border clearance process for low-risk, pre-approved travellers into Canada and the United States.
This is the official Government of Canada Web site for NEXUS applications. The NEXUS fee is $50 (CAN or US). Third party service providers may offer services for submitting your application and may charge an additional processing fee. This additional fee is not part of the official NEXUS application fee and is retained by the third party service provider. Expedited services offered by such parties will not assist in expediting your application process.
Here are the steps for becoming a member, from start to finish. There is a non-refundable processing fee of CAN$50 or US$50 per applicant for a five-year membership card.
There are occasions when NEXUS kiosks may be unavailable for brief periods of time as a result of technical difficulties. Be assured that the CBSA is committed to resolving these problems as quickly as possible. In order to continue processing you in an expedited manner, please proceed to the Special Services Counter where we will seek to get you quickly on your way. We appreciate your patience during these occurrences and apologize for any inconvenience.
Temporary Whirlpool-Rapids Bridge Closure
The Canada-bound NEXUS lane at the Whirlpool-Rapids Bridge border crossing will be closed from September 2 to October 9, 2014 due to construction of a second NEXUS lane.
During the closure, NEXUS members seeking entry into Canada should go to the Queenston-Lewiston Bridge, 9 km away (NEXUS lanes available) or the Rainbow Bridge, 3 km away (regular traffic). We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
