NEXUS Frequent Border Crossing Enrollment Center Moves

U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced that the enrollment center for U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s frequent border crossing program (NEXUS) moved on November 30, 2009, from International Falls, Minnesota, to Fort Frances, Ontario, Canada.

The NEXUS Enrollment Center is now located at 301 Scott Street, Fort Frances, Ontario, Canada P9A 1H1. The hours of operation are Monday and Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Thursday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The NEXUS program allows pre-screened, low-risk travelers to be processed with less delay by U.S. and Canadian officials at designated highway lanes at high-volume border crossing locations. Approved applicants are issued a photo identification/proximity card. Participants present their NEXUS card and make a declaration. They are then released, unless chosen for a more stringent inspection.

Both the U.S. and Canada must approve an individual’s application. Denial of an application by either country will prevent an individual from participating in the NEXUS program. NEXUS is a binational program and applicants need to complete only a single application form, which can be filled out online, mailed, or faxed.

Qualified applicants are required to come to a NEXUS Enrollment Center for an interview. Interviews can be scheduled online using the Global Online Enrollment system located on the NEXUS Web site.
