The Windsor-Detroit Tunnel will be closed for renovations from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. on various days until June 2018. Visit the tunnel website for the tunnel closure schedule. NEXUS members can decrease crossing times during the Tunnel Renovation Project by using the Canada-bound NEXUS lanes available at the Ambassador Bridge and the Blue Water Bridge, Sarnia/Port Huron.

Mexican nationals who are members of Mexico's Viajero Confiable program can now apply online for NEXUS membership, making them eligible for expedited processing at Canadian and U.S. border crossings.

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.
