Bills to host NEXUS enrollment event

Posted by on December 16, 2015 – 4:34 pm

U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in conjunction with the Buffalo Bills and NEXUS Niagara, will conduct a mobile NEXUS enrollment event at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y. As part of the event, the Buffalo Bills will be giving away autographed photos and raffling off an autographed official NFL football at the event.

Area residents may take advantage of this event to conveniently join NEXUS. Participation in NEXUS program allows travelers and Bills fans to proceed with little or no delay into the U.S. and Canada through dedicated lanes, making your cross-border travel a quicker process. NEXUS also affords you the benefits of Global Entry which is located at most major airports, TSA Pre-Check, and expedited processing for boaters.

NEXUS members may also cross the border on the Whirlpool Bridge in Niagara Falls, an exclusive benefit for NEXUS cardholders.

NEXUS application fees are $50 for adults, and children under the age of 18 are free. Once approved, the cards are good for five years at which time participants must renew their membership.

Applications for this event must be submitted online by December 18, 2015.

Processing at Ralph Wilson Stadium: December 29, 2015

TIME: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm


This Mobile Enrollment Event will be offered only to participants that have met the following requirements:
