Yes, someone privately told me they were amused about my marketing campaign :-)

If you are a regular and qualify, it’s really worth it.  It will save you about 30 minutes on arrival and 10-30 on departure because you can use the NEXUS(+GE) security line (similar to TSA Pre) as well as the kiosk at the airport in Canada.

They check that you have either your physical NEXUS or GE card at the airport, so if you haven’t left yet, grab it.

I’ll remind you before 107.  When I obtained GE originally it was about 7 days to conditional approval. NEXUS took several months until conditional approval and I live near a major US-CA border crossing (Detroit-Windsor) so the interview dates were pretty far out there.  It took from September until late December to get things done for our family.  If you do a family appointment you need to schedule the adults + kids all together (or at least on the same day).

See everyone at IEPG + IETF Tomorrow.
