Customs and Border Protection Opens a New NEXUS Enrollment Center in Niagara Falls
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced this week that it has opened a joint NEXUS Enrollment Center in Niagara Falls, NY. The new center is the second ‘Trusted Traveler’ enrollment center in the Buffalo area. The other center is located in Ontario, across the Peace Bridge. The Niagara Falls center was created to ease and make more convenient the process of obtaining a NEXUS border-crossing card for residents of both Canada and the U.S. that live near the center. In addition, the center can be used to renew NEXUS card applications, something that is required every five years.
The NEXUS program is a joint program between the U.S. and Canada aimed at enhancing border security while making the process of crossing the border easier for pre-approved travelers of low risk. More than 200,000 U.S. and Canadian citizens and residents are currently enrolled in the program.
