Does anyone know if they are strict on Nexus appointments? They officially don't allow walk-ins.
Hey there! I am using WhatsApp.

Global Entry/ Nexus
« Reply #95 on: January 06, 2012, 10:55:31 AM »
I am a pretty new member here, but felt to share what I did yesterday.

I applied for the Nexus program which includes the Global entry and Nexus program

I flew in to YYZ (Toronto) for the appt. (used Avios miles, 18K biz class R/T)

Took about 20 minutes, and I had Global entry in my hands (it's not a physical card, only that I can use the GE machine from now on, the Nexus card to use the Nexus program will arrive in about 10 days).

I am not in the mood now for a long post, but i can certainly help you out if you need more detailed information.

If you fly internationally often, GE can save you tens of hours of waiting.

...except that he apparently wanted nexus pretty badly (as you can be interviewed at JFK for GE).

But if you fly often, why not just save your appointment for when you're flying?

GE is the greatest invention since flat seats in Business Class. To date, I've saved at least 12 hours of lines because of it. At JFK, even if your kids dont have it, they let you queue (that word is for AussieBochur) at the Diplomatic line so you save almost as much time

If I sign up person A for Gloabal Entry and pay the fee using person B's Amex Plat, will Amex reimburse the fee? Or do they have a way of telling if the applicant's name matches the cardmember's?

is there a way that someone who is banned from GE, get reinstated (he has a black card)
