Tired Of Waiting in Border Line-Ups? Make It Simple, Use NEXUS! NEXUS members are pre-approved low-risk travellers, who can cross the Canada-United States border quickly and easily, using all three modes: Air, Land, and Marine. NEXUS is a partnership program between the Canada Border Services Agency and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Citizens and permanent residents of Canada and United States can apply. A five-year membership costs $50 CND or $50 U.S per person (non-refundable), and FREE for Children under the age of 18. For more information/applications call 1-866-NEXUS-26 or visit www.nexus.gc.ca. Applications may also be obtained from the Blue Water Bridge Currency Exchange.
As of April 19th 2010, NEXUS members may use a new “NEXUS Priority Lane” for pre-boarding security screening for domestic and some international flights (excluding flights to the United States) at the Macdonald-Cartier International Airport located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and at Terminal 1 at the Pearson International Airport in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and for domestic flights at Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport in Montréal. The priority security screening lane is part of a pilot project implemented by the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) in partnership with Transport Canada and the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).
To benefit from this service, present your valid NEXUS membership card and boarding pass to the security screening officer at the designated screening checkpoint. If you do not have your membership card with you, you must use the regular screening lanes. Lanes will be clearly identified. All passengers, including those accessing the NEXUS Priority Lane, are required to comply with CATSA screening requirements. Visit www.catsa.gc.ca for more information.
