NEXUS Declaring Goods
If you are a Canadian or U.S. resident and you are importing goods for your own personal use, and you are within your personal exemption or entitlement, you may use the NEXUS lane and make an oral declaration to the border officer. If you are over your personal exemption or entitlement, you must use a regular traffic lane to report your goods. NEXUS members who present themselves for NEXUS passage when arriving in the United States must not have any commercial goods in their possession or in their baggage. Please note that personal computers and similar items carried by NEXUS members for their own personal use while on business trips are not considered commercial goods.
If you are a NEXUS card holder who is resident in Canada you must complete a Traveller Declaration Card (TDC) to import goods for your own personal use. This must be completed prior to your arrival in Canada and deposited in the designated box in the NEXUS lane. You can get more information at I Declare. If you are crossing the border with $10,000 or more you need to declare this.
If you are a NEXUS card holder who is resident in the U.S., you should make an oral declaration of goods when entering Canada. You can get more information at Information for Visitors to Canada and Seasonal Residents
