I can’t believe I waited so long to get my Global Entry and Nexus cards. I’ve only used each of them once and they are already worth the $100 fee for five years. Imagine not having to wait in a long line or fill out any handwritten forms after your flight to the United States. Just walk up to one of the kiosks, confirm your identity (photo and fingerprints for Global Entry and scanning your eyes for Nexus) and answer the standard immigration questions and go! To apply, all you need to do is fill out a 15-minute online questionnaire, accept a background check and go for a 30-minute interview. It’s good at 26 US airports and five in Canada. Global Entry membership is open to U.S. citizens and citizens of Mexico, Canada and the Netherlands. If you travel to Canada often, then apply for Nexus first since it’s only $50 for five years and it will automatically get you enrolled in Global Entry. I give it two HUGE thumbs up! TIP: If you have an American Express Platinum card they will pay the $100 fee.
