4. Entering the U.S. by air

If you are travelling to the U.S. as a NEXUS member from a Canadian airport with a U.S. preclearance area, you may use your NEXUS card or your passport at the Global Entry kiosks:

  1. Proceed to the Global Entry kiosk located in the U.S. preclearance area
  2. Follow the prompts on the screen and complete the entry process
  3. You will then receive a receipt to give to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer
  4. You may proceed to the transborder lounge unless you are directed to an inspection area

Only the Global Entry kiosks located in U.S. preclearance areas at Canadian airports will accept a NEXUS card. When entering the U.S. from other airports, you must use your passport to receive NEXUS privileges.

Declaring goods

If you are entering the U.S. and you are importing goods for your own personal use, you may use the self-serve kiosk to declare these goods. If the self-serve kiosk is closed, you may either use the crew counter or follow the regular traveller procedure and declare your goods to a U.S. CBP officer.

NEXUS members who present themselves for NEXUS passage when arriving in the U.S. must not have any commercial goods in their possession or in their baggage. Personal computers and similar items carried by NEXUS members for their own personal use while on business trips are not considered commercial goods.
