I am trying to apply for NEXUS. I have Canadian citizenship with a conditional US green card (through marriage to my American husband). My card is expired but I have my I-797c (for I-751) notice letter already. On the application it just states green card and nowhere to put this letter's information. My status is extended for a year as PR, but the card is obviously expired.

Can I still apply or do I have to wait for my 10-year green card to arrive? Do I need to go into the office to show them this? I am very confused, any help would be appreciated.

  • Why risk things? Just wait until you get your new card.

  • Because I go back every month twice from Seattle to vancouver , I asked my immigration attorney he said I qualify for it but on the application there is no where I can put the letter's information in. I was just wondering if anyone else was able to do it online. It might take over 1.5 years to get the new card. I would probably become USA citizenship before I get my 2nd green card interview under trump's administration processing time. Aug 22, 2018 at 1:26
  • I believe all you need is your A# which remains constant between all your green cards. So just enter that. And given that citizenship processing is similarly backed up, it might be best to not count on that...

  • ah thanks!! forgot USCIS number was A number, yes my attorney told me citizenship is also backed but not nearly as bad as the green card in Seattle at least. He said I will probably apply for citizenship before I get the interview lol in seattle Aug 22, 2018 at 1:34

All you need for your Nexus application is your A# which remains constant between all your green cards and is your USCIS number. So just enter that. For the expiration date, you can enter the extension date on your letter.
