Navigating Houston airport - Global Entry/TSA Pre-check?

Canadian version is called NEXUs We fly in and out of Toronto and are fairly frequent fliers . Works great getting out of Canada for clearing security and going through the States but less so coming back into Canada . My wife spends more time adjusting positions to get her eyes scanned than we would if she had just filled in the form and went through the machine reader . She has no problem with the machines at US airports

FYI Toronto is one of the only places that does an Iris scan. Our Nexus cards do not have Iris scans.


Huh? Most major airports in Canada have Nexus kiosks, with Iris scanners. I don't understand how you can have a Nexus card with no iris scan, although you say you (at least your wife) you use the scanner. I've been in the program since it started, when they only registered one eye, now it's two. The kiosks were notoriously unreliable for sometime, they have since been upgraded after being inundated with complaints...


You ain't getting it......NEXUS is primarily for BORDER CROSSING [by car] but is ALSO approved for global entry. We got our cards at Sarnia/Port Huron. Just like you can get NEXUS cards at ANY of these crossings.......They DO NOT have Iris scans available.
