NEXUS Gets New Empahsis from CBP and CBSA

It looks like U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) are attempting to take steps to improve and expand upon the trusted traveler program known as NEXUS, in an effort to conform to the aspirations of the Beyond The Border Plan.

Specifically, the agencies announced this past week that the two agencies will now streamline the NEXUS membership renewal process, by waiving the former interview requirement for members who have not had “changes to their information” and have maintained “low risk status.” Further, the two countries have begun enrollment blitzes, by expediting processing and further promoting the NEXUS program.
