NEXUS got conditionally approved for being a PR less than 3 years

  1. Hi,

    Just want to share my recent experience for NEXUS application for not being a Canadian PR more than 3 years.

    I used to live in the U.S. in F-1 status for more than 6 years and I became a Canadian PR in January 2018. Before I became a Canadian PR, I also lived in Canada holding open work permit for less than 1 year. I applied for NEXUS in early July 2018 and got conditionally approved in late August. So I believe the 3 years residency requirement does not necessarily apply to the time after becoming a Canadian PR. In my case, obviously it counted my U.S. residency.

  2. Maybe because you just have to prove 3 years of legal stay in Canada or USA and not 3 years of PR.
    Your reason of conditional approval is not because you are PR so short, but because you stayed in USA so long compared to Canada.
  3. very useful info, was it an easy process?
  4. I Came to Canada on Student visa Jan 2013...i got my PR DEC 2015.... applied for Nexus.. Feb 2016.. got my card March 2016... ( i do not think there is a strict 3 year PR residency requirement)...its case to case basis....

    Now , my wife came to Canada Dec 2018... got PR Sept 2019... applied for Nexus Oct 2019... lets see what she gets!!!!
