Benefits of NEXUS

If you are approved to participate in NEXUS, you will receive a radio frequency identification card to use when entering the United States and Canada at designated NEXUS air, land and marine ports of entry.

Why You Should Join

Membership in the NEXUS program allows you to reduce your wait times at designated ports of entry by:

  • using dedicated processing lanes at land border crossings,
  • using NEXUS kiosks when entering Canada,
  • using Global Entry kioks when entering the United States, and
  • calling a marine telephone reporting center to report your arrival into the United States and Canada
