U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Canada Border Services Agency announced a new interview option to increase enrollment capacity for NEXUS, a binational program that expedites preapproved travelers’ transit between the two countries.
Background: The NEXUS program allows both countries to focus their screening efforts on unknown and potentially higher-risk travelers and goods. CBP and CBSA have completed more than 200,000 NEXUS enrollments since Oct. 1, 2022, and reduced the net inventory of applicants by approximately 100,000 from its peak in summer 2022.
BAL Analysis: The announcement of a new NEXUS interview option is welcome news, as it will increase the enrollment capacity for new and renewing members. BAL will continue to monitor the implementation of the interview option and will provide more information as it becomes available.
