NEXUS Card for Children

Nexus Card for Children

The procedure of processing applications for children is the same as that for adults. All children under 18 need approval of a parent or legal guardian in order to apply for a NEXUS card. There are some differences – as children rarely have criminal records, their applications are denied because of incomplete or inaccurate information provided in the documents.

If you are applying for your child only, please follow this link.

All children under 18 are exempt from all fees.

Application for Children

Children applying for a NEXUS card have to attend an interview similar to that of adults. At the interview they need to be accompanied by an adult. At the interview, the parent or the authorized person has to provide documents proving they have the custodial right to take the child out of the country. All documents will be scrutinized by authorized NEXUS personnel.

Children can apply for a NEXUS card even if their parents are not NEXUS card holders. In case you share the custody of your children, it is recommended that you carry copies of legal documents. Also, it is preferable to have a legal letter including the parents’ fill name, address and phone number stating that you can take the child on a trip out of the country. This letter is an official document confirming that the child is not taken against their will or abducted. If you are traveling with children, you will be asked questions about them at the border and your vehicle may be inspected carefully, as customs officers are very strict about abducted or missing children.

If you have any additional questions, please proceed to NEXUS FAQ’s page.
