Does anyone know how interview on arrival works at YYZ?
I went there recently,I think there is only one place for the interviews which is directly across the police station inside the terminal.
  Go for Nexus if your already taking the interview. 

 I go to Canada pretty often,enough that it pays for the family to each get approved for Nexus, as the border lines when crossing is retarded sometimes, as well when flying you could use the Nexus lane when going in and coming out of Canada.
     I ended up being in Toronto for suckos so I found an open date early morning chol hamoed and went for the GE application, while I was there I'm like any way for me to swap it for the Nexus application as a Nexus is only $50 while global entry is $100 (and Nexus includes everything while global entry only includes TSA) so he said good question I don't think I could do that for you, but you should have applied for Nexus because whatever is in our system it's the only thing I can process.
   The whole interview was 5 minutes chick-chock he said Nexus applications are much longer, he was thrilled to process my GE application as he's used to processing Nexus applications which takes some time.
   Very interesting that none of the Canadian Nexus enrollment people had weapons on them.

  I remember when flying from JFK to YYZ I stopped off at the Nexus enrollment center / GE enrollment center and ask about an interview they told me no you have to schedule an interview, so don't know if they offer walk-in applicants/applications.

If you can renew by mail it takes about 2-3 weeks

I think this is the primary objective;
  "expense to renew the passport that I don't need necessarily now (no international travel planned)."

to answer my question: the 'documents' page insists on a current passport (where you enter expiration date)

(re: motive
I am looking to take advantage of a GE credit on a card which I hope to cancel/downgrade in the next few days)

Would a passport card work for you which is cheaper?

In any case, I have a current passport. Was posting the requirement as a PSA

Hi, I know this info exists on ddf, as I've chanced upon it before, but cant find it now. For those who don't have Global entry, there's an app that saves your passport info and allows passenger to scan passport from app upon arrival and proceed straight to an agent, essentially making the process almost as fast as GE. Does anyone re the name of that app
?
