Additionally, preclearance locations adjudicate NAFTA applications for work permits only when an applicant is applying for admission. Applicants must have a boarding pass and be leaving on a departing flight. Applicants cannot make appointments to have their applications adjudicated and cannot enter the CBP area in the airports without a boarding pass.
