Nexus is a voluntary expedited clearance initiative for pre-approved low-risk international travelers. The Nexus program will allow pre-screened travelers expedited processing when entering the United States and Canada. Program members use dedicated processing lanes at designated northern border ports of entry, Nexus kiosks when entering Canada by air and Global Entry kiosks when entering the United States via Canadian preclearance airports. Nexus members also receive expedited processing at marine reporting locations.


To become a conditionally approved Nexus applicant, individuals must apply online, undergo a background investigation and complete an in-person interview with a CBP officer. If no disqualifying information is found, travelers receive the benefit of expedited processing. The $50 application fee allows for five years of membership and travelers can use nearly 300 kiosks located at 34 U.S. airports and nine pre-clearance locations in Canada.


“CBP’s goal for this enrollment event is to provide a convenient, easy-access, local venue for conditionally approved Nexus applicants to complete the required interview with a CBP officer,” said Area Port of Pembina, North Dakota, Area Port Director Jason Schmelz.


During the enrollment event, the temporary Enrollment Center will open on April 27 and close on April 29 with daily Enrollment Center hours from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., CT.


Nexus enrollment also provides access to the TSA Pre initiative, which offers expedited screening through domestic airport security checkpoints. Benefits of TSA Pre™ include being permitted to leave shoes, light outerwear and belts on, and not having to remove laptops from carrying cases.
