For nationals and citizens Mexico and Canada, a Border Crossing Card is an alternative nonimmigrant visa issued by a United States State Consular Office or by the Customs and Border Patrol. Several types of border crossing cards are available to expedite border crossings between Canada and the U.S., as well as between the U.S. and Mexico. Preapproval of trusted travelers along with advanced ID technology makes traveling across the U.S. border both ... quicker and more convenient. Citizens and residents of Mexico, traveling for tourist and/or business purposes, can get a B-1/B-2 Visa/Border Crossing Card. Visitors from Mexico who come to the U.S. often, can also get the SENTRI card and vehicle decal, and thus avoid the long lines at the U.S. border. SENTRI stands for “Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection.” Citizens and permanent residents of Canada and the United States can join the NEXUS program, which makes the border clearance process on the U.S.-Canadian border faster for low-risk, pre-approved travelers. NEXUS facilitates travel between the U.S. and Canada not only at land border crossings: It can be used for marine and air travel as well.
