According to the CBSA website:

In addition, certain permanent residents are also exempted from the three-year residency requirement.

However I couldn't find the exact list of conditions for being exempt. Does any website explain this in better detail?

There's a link given on CBP website and link on CBSA website that elaborates. "Canadian and American citizens living outside of Canada or the United States or who have recently returned to either country and have not previously been able to meet the three-year residency requirement are now eligible to apply."

In addition, if you are a permanent resident of either country and have lived in either country for more than 3 years, you might be eligible (they will need to check your background, travel history etc. to confirm this).

  • "they will need to check your background, travel history etc. to confirm this" - so would e.g. a European citizen be eligible normally? – JonathanReez Apr 3 '18 at 3:18
  • If you have lived in US/Canada as PR/US/Canadian Citizen then probably. They will look back atleast 3 years from the time you apply for Nexus. If you haven't lived in either country for 3 years will most likely reject you. Nexus is an agreement between US and Canada for US and Canadian citizens, or permanent residents who have lived in either country for 3 years or more. An option for European might be Global Entry cbp.gov/travel/trusted-traveler-programs/global-entry/… check if your country falls into one and if you are eligible. – AVJ Apr 3 '18 at 22:23
