Dear reader,

If you are already a Global Entry member and are considering obtaining NEXUS, I have great news for you! As a Global Entry member, you are already pre-approved for NEXUS, which means the process of obtaining NEXUS will be much easier and faster for you.

NEXUS is a trusted traveler program that allows expedited processing for pre-approved, low-risk travelers entering the United States and Canada. It offers all the benefits of Global Entry, plus additional perks for travel between the two countries.

To transition from Global Entry to NEXUS, you will need to follow a few simple steps:

1. Log in to your Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) account: Visit the official website of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and log in to your TTP account using your Global Online Enrollment System (GOES) username and password.

2. Complete the application: Once logged in, select the "Apply for a new program" option and choose NEXUS. You will be asked to provide some personal information and answer a series of questions related to your travel history, criminal background, and eligibility for the program.

3. Pay the application fee: The application fee for NEXUS is $50, which covers a five-year membership. You can pay this fee online using a credit card or electronic funds transfer.

4. Schedule an interview: After submitting your application and paying the fee, you will need to schedule an interview at a NEXUS Enrollment Center. Fortunately, as a Global Entry member, you may be eligible for an expedited interview process. Keep in mind that NEXUS Enrollment Centers are located near the U.S.-Canada border, so you may need to travel to a nearby location for your interview.

5. Attend the interview: During the interview, a CBP officer will verify your identity, review your application, and ask you a few questions. They may also collect your fingerprints and take your photo for the NEXUS card.

Once your application is approved, you will receive your NEXUS card in the mail. This card will grant you expedited processing at dedicated NEXUS lanes when crossing the U.S.-Canada border by land, air, or sea. Additionally, you will have access to Global Entry kiosks when entering the United States from international destinations.

It's important to note that while the NEXUS application process is generally straightforward, it may take some time to complete due to the interview scheduling and processing times. However, as a Global Entry member, you are already considered a trusted traveler, which increases the likelihood of a smooth and efficient application process.

In summary, if you are already a Global Entry member, obtaining NEXUS is a logical next step to enhance your travel experience between the United States and Canada. The benefits of NEXUS, such as expedited processing and dedicated lanes, will save you time and make your journeys even more seamless.

I hope this guide has provided you with the information you need to easily obtain NEXUS as a Global Entry member. Safe travels!

Warm regards,

Lily Chen
