Navigating the Payment Process for Your Nexus Canada Application Online

If you’re a frequent traveler between Canada and the United States, you may be interested in applying for a NEXUS card. This trusted traveler program allows expedited processing at border crossings, airports, and other points of entry. The good news is that you can now apply for your NEXUS card online, making the process faster and easier than ever before.

One of the key steps in your NEXUS application process is paying the application fee online. Here’s what you need to know about navigating this payment process.

Creating an Account

Before you can pay your NEXUS application fee online, you’ll need to create an account on the Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) website. This site is operated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), which jointly administer the NEXUS program.

To create your TTP account, you’ll need to provide personal information such as your name, date of birth, email address, and passport details. You’ll also be asked to create a username and password for future access to your account.

Paying Your Fee

Once you’ve created your TTP account, you can log in and begin your NEXUS application. As part of this process, you’ll be asked to pay a non-refundable application fee of $50 CAD per person.


To pay this fee online, you’ll need a valid credit or debit card with sufficient funds. Accepted payment methods include Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, JCB, Diners Club International, and UnionPay.

After entering your payment details on the secure TTP website, be sure to review all charges before submitting your payment. You should also keep a copy of your receipt for future reference.

Waiting for Approval

After paying your NEXUS application fee online and completing all required forms and background checks, you’ll need to wait for approval from both the CBP and CBSA. This process can take several weeks or even months.


If your application is approved, you’ll receive a notification letter with instructions on how to schedule your NEXUS interview. This interview is a mandatory step in the process and must be conducted in person at a designated enrollment center.

In the meantime, you can check the status of your NEXUS application online by logging into your TTP account. You should also keep an eye out for any emails or mail from the CBP or CBSA regarding your application.


Applying for a NEXUS card online can save you time and hassle compared to traditional paper applications. By understanding how to navigate the payment process, you can ensure that your application fee is paid securely and efficiently. With patience and persistence, you too can enjoy the benefits of expedited travel between Canada and the United States with your NEXUS card.
