Nexus Application for ChildrenChild Nexus Application

NEXUS Support Services process NEXUS CHILD RENEWAL applications for a minimal fee of $10. For security reasons, child renewal applications are only processed online by our simplified child application form and we do not accept paper applications by email or fax for child NEXUS cards. The $10 payment option is to enable Nexus Support Services to verify identity of the Paying Parent/Legal Guardian and prevent fraudulent child renewal applications being processed by NEXUS Support Services.


Child NexusYour NEXUS child renewal application must contain supporting documentation otherwise your child may be denied a NEXUS pass. All infants and children require the consent of a parent or legal guardian to apply for a NEXUS renewal pass. NEXUS renewal applications for children are scrutinized in the same way as an adult NEXUS application; however fewer child renewal applications for NEXUS are denied entry to the program as few children have criminal and immigration violations compared to adult NEXUS renewal applicants. In most cases when a child is denied a renewal NEXUS card, the reason comes down to incomplete or inaccurate information provided on the application form.

You can apply for a child renewal NEXUS pass even if you or their other parent or guardian is not a NEXUS pass holders. Parents who share custody of their children should carry copies of the legal custody documents. It is also recommended that they have a letter of authorization from the other custodial parent to take the child on a trip out of the country. Such a letter will confirm that the child is not being abducted or taken against his or her will. The parents’ full name, address and telephone number should be Included in the letter of authorization.

All infants applying for a renewal NEXUS card must attend a NEXUS interview at a NEXUS enrollment center of your choice. At the NEXUS interview, children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by at least one parent or guardian who has legal custody of the child; families will be interviewed in one meeting. The parent or guardian must present documentary evidence proving their custodial rights and proof that there are no restrictions on the child’s removal from the custodial jurisdiction. The NEXUS officer will scrutinize the documents to ascertain that the parents or guardians applying for the NEXUS pass for children is actually the parents or legal guardians of the NEXUS child applicant. Child applicants to NEXUS do not have to have an iris scan unless their parents request it.


Inaccurate or incomplete NEXUS pass application forms are automatically denied access to the NEXUS cards program.

When traveling with a group of vehicles, parents or guardians should arrive at the border in the same vehicle as the children. Adults who are not parents or guardians should have written permission from the parents or guardians to supervise the children. The permission letter should include addresses and telephone numbers where the parents or guardian can be reached. When you arrive at the US Canada border with children in your car you may be subject to detailed questions about the children traveling with you because customs and border protection officers are constantly on watch for missing and abducted children.
