Additional Information: NEXUS applicants have three options for completing their interviews after being conditionally approved for NEXUS. Applicants can complete a(n):

  • Joint interview at a U.S.-based enrollment center.
  • Interview at a Canadian land enrollment center and then complete another interview at a U.S. enrollment center location at the Canadian border.
  • Interview at a Canadian airport enrollment center with CBSA officers and complete a U.S. interview with CBP at Canadian airport preclearance locations for those flying from Canada to the United States.

BAL Analysis: U.S. and Canadian authorities reopened the NEXUS enrollment centers in Canada to reduce wait times and expand the program. The reopened centers will help reduce the backlog of applications and help more individuals get NEXUS cards.
