Trusted Traveler Program set to Expand in Airports

Starting in 2016, the United States, Mexico and Canada plan to create a “trusted traveler” network that will allow eligible citizens to apply for fast track airport screening.

Under the agreement Mexican nationals who are registered for the Viajero Confiable program will be able to apply for the United States-Canada Nexus trusted traveler program.

Canadians who are members of Nexus will be able to apply for Viajero Confiable and if accepted will be eligible for expedited screening at international airports in Mexico.

Citizens of the United States may already apply for Nexus and Viajero Confiable status in Canada and Mexico though existing agreements between U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the National Institute of Migration in Mexico and the Canadian Department of Public Safety.
