The NEXUS card is designed to speed up border crossings for low-risk, pre-approved travelers into Canada and the United States. It is jointly run by the Canada Border Services Agency and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The program enables its members to enter either country more quickly and easily by using automated self-serve kiosks in the air mode of travel, dedicated lanes in the land mode of travel, and by calling Telephone Reporting Centers (TRCs) prior to arrival in the marine mode of travel.

NEXUS card applicants can easily be denied if they have a past criminal record or any violation or customs laws. Both Canada and the United States must approve your application for you to become a member of NEXUS. If you do not meet all of the requirements, your application will be denied.

Canada Pardon Waiver can assist individuals in the process of obtaining all required documents and you can be sure that all required documents will be submitted correctly according to NEXUS requirements. However we cannot guarantee the approval of your application to NEXUS. If your NEXUS application is denied, you will be informed in letter with a reason from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
