Coronavirus disease (COVID-19): Changes to travel-related programs and services
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) offers a number of programs and services intended to help travellers save time at the border. In response to COVID-19, we are temporarily suspending or reducing some of these programs and services.
Temporary service reductions
To protect the safety and security of travellers and our employees, some services at low-traffic border crossings/border services locations are temporarily suspended:
Remote Area Border Crossing Program
The Remote Area Border Crossing Program is temporarily suspended.
NEXUS and FAST enrollment centres in Canada and in the U.S. will remain closed until at least . The re-opening of the enrollment centres is continually assessed in consideration of current travel restrictions.
To reschedule your NEXUS or U.S./Canada FAST appointment, please log into your online Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) System account. NEXUS and U.S./Canada FAST members who submitted an application for membership renewal prior to the expiry date on the card will maintain their membership for 18 months beyond the expiry date.
Temporary lane closures at NEXUS land ports of entry have been implemented until further notice.
Be advised that the CBSA is extending the validity of expired and expiring memberships for the following programs:
- Pilot Project for Travellers in Remote Areas (Quebec)
- Commercial Driver Registration Program
The CBSA continues to accept applications and renewal requests for these programs. However, there will be significant processing delays.
