American.

I don't think citizenship has to do with it. All applicants have to go though the CBP and CBSA vetting processes.

Right now, it's the perfect storm. The first applicants are renewing, CBP is under sequestration and people are signing up to get Precheck. Also, CBSA only has to vet Nexus applicants. CBP has to vet Nexus and Global Entry applicants.

I got GE just a few months ago. Took only 10 days to get conditional approval. Must be the Canadian side that is so slow.

I called cbp today and was told nexus takes longer to approve because of Canada. They are behind and it could take anywhere from 7-10 weeks. Sometimes more.

Oh well, I am waiting too.

9th week

I helped my Canadian friend applied for a Nexus Card on May 8, 2013 and they received the payment on May 10, 2013. We applied online and we've been wait now 9 weeks is this a normal time? Do you think there is a problem? I applied for a Nexus about 3 years ago and I don't think it took this long. But I'm from the u.s. Can you give me some information on the time line please! Thanks

I agree. I am almost at 9 weeks. I was hoping to have this done before I went to Vancouver next month. I gave myself 12 weeks thinking that would be plenty of time. Particularly since my Global Entry approval took only about 10 days earlier this year.

Can't imagine what the delay is.

I've been waiting since May 20th. I was hoping it would be quick as I wanted to use PreCheck.

I call CBSA and they told me is now take 3 month since the day I made the payment. So he told me I should get an answer in mid August. I am not sure if that true or not what ever he told me.
