What are the following steps in your NEXUS application procedure?

Your NEXUS application will be classified with a “Pending Review” status. This means that your application has been submitted to the CBP and is being processed. On average, it takes about 3 to 6 months to receive either a conditional approval or a denial on your eligibility as an trusted traveler member. Sadly, the vetting process cannot be speeded up. With the status change of your NEXUS card application, you will be contacted by an email from CBP/TTP. If you have been conditionally approved, you will be instructed to schedule an interview at the enrollment center in your proximity. It is mandatory to follow the instructions and make sure your interview appointment is scheduled within 730 days at an Enrollment Center.

Please note that we cannot guarantee that you will be approved for the NEXUS card program. You may receive denial in certain cases, like if you have a criminal record, an immigration violation or you gave us inaccurate data on your NEXUS card application form.

If you have any further questions, we invite you to proceed to Nexus FAQ’s page.

What is the NEXUS Card Interview

If NEXUS card applicants are conditionally approved, they will receive an invitation to go to a NEXUS Enrollment Center for an interview. The NEXUS interview lasts for around 15 minutes. However, questions could vary in different enrollment centers. Applicants are questioned by both USA and Canadian customs officers. The questions will be almost the same as those on the NEXUS application form. You could be asked what is the reason for applying for a NEXUS card or to confirm and validate your names and home address. It is vital to respond to all questions sincerely and correctly.

The interviewing agent will explain the rules of the NEXUS program and answer your questions if you have any. Transporting forbidden goods through the border or using the NEXUS lane with passengers who are not NEXUS card holders might jeopardize your status as a trusted traveler and your NEXUS card might be revoked. At the interview the applicants are fingerprinted and photographed. If they plan use their NEXUS cards for air travel they must have an eye scan at a limited amount of NEXUS interview locations that have the eye scanning facility.

The documents that you will need to bring to the NEXUS interview are outlined in your conditional approval letter. You can find it once you log into your profile. If you cannot find or print it, please contact us and we will assist you by sending you a copy over email. Overall, necessary documents include passport, birth certificate, PR card and visas to confirm your citizenship or permanent residence in either the US or Canada. If you are enrolling your vehicle in the NEXUS program, please ensure that you bring its registration papers and your driver’s license. We recommend having a proof of your address ready such as a utility bill and lastly, your conditional approval letter.

The majority of people who are welcomed to arrange an interview are ultimately approved for a NEXUS card, but there are no guarantees. The NEXUS card will be sent via the mail and will be delivered 7 to 10 days after the interview. When the NEXUS card arrives, you must activate it online following the instructions that were sent with it.

If you are travelling with children, ensure that you have scheduled your whole family for an interview simultaneously in consecutive time slots. If you are a single parent and you have custody or parental consent documents, you need to bring them to the interview as well.
