What Is a NEXUS Card?
A NEXUS card is a border crossing card permitting expedited travel across the U.S.-Canadian border to low-risk U.S. and Canadian citizens. Based on the bilateral agreement between Canada and the United States, the Canada Border Services Agency and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency jointly manages the Trusted Traveller program.
Several NEXUS border points exist between the two countries, such as at Canadian airports and marine ports. A NEXUS card can be used as an alternative to a passport, and it can be obtained by any U.S. or Canadian citizen, as long as they are permanent residents of one of the countries and have no criminal records. According to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website, the NEXUS card is an acceptable List B document of identification.
