NEXUS Renewal Procedure
The NEXUS card renewal process is the same as for first time applicants if your personal information has changed in the last 5 years. If your personal data i.e. address and employment history, passport information, drivers license have not changed since you first enrolled for the NEXUS program the renewal process is faster and you may not have to attend an interview. NEXUS membership can be renewed 90 days preceding your NEXUS card expiry date.

NEXUS card is valid for 5 years. When your NEXUS card expires you renew your card by filling out an application form and attending another interview at a NEXUS enrollment center. You do not have to attend an interview if your personal data is exactly the same as when you first applied for NEXUS (i.e. address and employment history, passport information, drivers license).
The United States and Canada are committed to safe and secure borders; over the last 5 years your status as a low risk traveller may have changed. Thus, NEXUS background and security checks will be conducted from scratch by law enforcement agencies, Citizenship and Immigration agencies and Customs and Border Protection agencies in both the US and Canada.
If you are conditionally approved to the NEXUS program you must attend a compulsory interview at a NEXUS enrollment center; you have 30 days in which to schedule a NEXUS interview otherwise you will be automatically denied from the NEXUS pass program. You will not be eligible to reapply until 90 days after the denial has passed. If you intend to use your NEXUS pass for air travel you must schedule your interview at an iris scan enrollment center.
