FAST Trusted Traveler Program FAQS (14)
Yes. FAST card is an alternative passport when driving between the Canada, the USA and Mexico. Under the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (Canada is a participant) the FAST card along with the enhanced driver’s license, the NEXUS card and Mexican SENTRI pass are recognized as acceptable equivalent documents to a valid passport. This law was brought into force on June 1, 2009.
If you have a criminal record or have violated immigration laws you will not qualify for a FAST driver pass because you will not be considered a low risk driver. It doesn’t matter how long ago your offense was committed or how minor it may seem (parking violations do not count against you on the FAST program) unless you have a US waiver of inadmissibility and or a Canadian pardon you will not be allowed to cross.
NEXUS Trusted Traveler Program FAQS (33)
You must update all contact details as well as any amendments or changes to your documentation e.g. new passport, driver’s license, permanent resident cards etc. If you receive a criminal conviction (other than a traffic violation) you must also inform Nexus. You can do this by calling in to one of the Enrolment Centers.
No, you cannot apply for Nexus unless you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident card holder who has a visa for the United States and you must have lived in either Canada of the US or both for the last three years.
