Dear travelers, I would like to bring your attention to one of the best traveling programs that I know so far – NEXUS! And to be more specific, I would give you more information about the Nexus renewal process that I passed through recently. But first, let me give you a short preview of what the Nexus program is and how it can be used.
WHAT IS NEXUS CARD?
Nexus (also known as Trusted Traveler program) is a program designed for people who travel frequently between Canada and USA. All US/ Canadian citizens and lawful permanent residents can enjoy the benefits of it and can pass the borders in no time. Nexus pass is available for single person, as well as for whole family and it is good for 5 years. After that period, you may apply for Nexus Renewal and keep enjoying the fast travel.
NEXUS CARD BENEFITS OR WHY YOU HAVE TO TAKE ONE:
Oh, well. To be honest, I am sick and tired of the long lines at the airport especially when it comes to domestic flights. Few years ago, I almost MISSED MY FLIGHT! Then, one of the security officers asked me why I didn’t take a Nexus pass yet, if I am traveling often, so I can skip this extremely long line. I had just a basic idea what Nexus card is, but from that time on, I started my research and here are one of the best benefits you can enjoy if you are Nexus Pass owner:
• If you have Nexus, you are automatically TSA pre-checked and you can pass the security checks on the airports for 3-5 min with no extra headache. (Don’t forget to include your Pass ID/ KTN number into your reservation when booking it)
• You can use Global Entry Kiosks at 20 of the major airports when entering US (plus your passport will be needed as well)
• Expedited land border crossing when you travel with a car (plus a vehicle documents as well)
• If you crossing the US – Canada border with a boat or another vessel, you can be pre-cleared with a just phone call to the border authorities in up to 4 hrs.
• Less stress when you need to travel with your little ones
NEXUS CARD RENEWAL – HOW AND WHY?
Since I am a proud member of the Nexus family, I can say that I made my life easier when traveling. Few months ago my Nexus card expired and I really needed to renew it because me and a friend of mine are planning to spend a vacation in USA in the upcoming month of July. Honestly, I am not so familiar with all the bureaucratic Government procedures and I did a small research for a company that can help me with that. On top of everything I had no extra time to spent on renewing my Nexus Card due to work overload, so finding someone who can do it for me was a BLESSING! I dedicated my nexus renewal to the qualified team of globaltrustedtraveler.com that made the difference! All I had to do is to provide them with certain details, pay and wait for my card. The guys from Global Trusted Traveler team contacted me additionally just to confirm my address as I did some weird typos, otherwise it was the same as before. I didn’t expect it, but it was nice to see that someone is taking care of your application and it won’t lead to denial…just because of a TYPO! I could recommend the personal touch of the Global Trusted Traveler team – they know what they do! When I got my Nexus Renewal I was a little bit surprised as I literally forgot that I applied for renewing. Everything was unexpectedly easy and you don’t have think about it all the time!
