Cross often? Make it simple, use NEXUS.
NEXUS is designed to expedite the border clearance process for low-risk, pre-approved travellers into Canada and the United States.
If you are a NEXUS member and are entering Canada you can use the dedicated NEXUS lane and stop and hold your membership card in front of the card reader.
You then proceed to the inspection booth for a visual inspection. The CBSA officer will indicate whether you are to enter the inspection area or proceed into Canada.
Here are the steps for becoming a member, from start to finish. There is a non-refundable processing fee of CAN$50 or US$50 per applicant for a five-year membership card.
You can apply online to NEXUS using the Global Online Enrollment System (GOES) that is operated by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (U.S. CBP).
Online application is available from this link:
