Nexus Family Renewal

Nexus Family Renewal

Whether you have applied as an individual or a family, your NEXUS card is valid for 5 years and you will need to renew your membership. The Customs and Border Protection requires members to begin their renewal application 90 days before the expiration date on their pass. The NEXUS card renewal procedures are similar to the original application process. To extend your membership in the program you and your family need to submit a separate application form and go through registration. Since your status as a low- risk traveler may have changed, you and your family will undergo a background check. You may or may not be asked to attend an interview after your application has been reviewed by the CBP. If there is a change in your personal information such as address, employment or marital status, you may be asked to attend an in-person interview. Please note that previous membership in the NEXUS program does not guarantee that your renewal application will be accepted. Once your NEXUS card is renewed, you and your family will have border crossing privileges at any land, air or marine ports of entry. Global Trusted Traveler can assist you with the entire renewal process. Simply follow the steps below!
