    This just landed in my junk email bin. More expensive than GE or NEXUS since the dues are per year, rather than over a number of years:

    You are receiving this message because you have been identified by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as a U.S. citizen or Canadian citizen enrolled in the NEXUS program. CBP would like to inform you that the United Kingdom now operates an expedited entry program called Registered Traveller and you may be eligible to apply.

    Registered Traveller is a new service launched by the UK Border Force to give faster and more convenient entry to the UK for eligible nationals from the United States and Canada. Membership of Registered Traveller costs £70 in the first year and £50 per year thereafter.

    Complete details of Registered Traveller eligibility and availability can be found online at http://www.gov.uk/registered-traveller

    Membership of Registered Traveller includes the following benefits:

    • Access to ePassport gates at participating airports across the country
    • Use of the UK / EEA queue at participating airports across the country
    • Not needing to complete a landing card on arrival to the UK
    • No credibility interview with a Border Force officer.

    Registered Traveller is already proving popular with members, who have provided praises such as, “This is an excellent service, it is efficient, extremely well run and very effective. I would highly recommend this service,” and “Well done Britain. Fast, secure, easy. Great service and timesaver, and remarkably easy to set up. Thanks to all the people who made this possible.”

    You can apply for Registered Traveler online now at www.gov.uk/registered-traveller.

    Got that as well. They also require 4+ visits to the UK in 24 months. Which isn't too much :);)

    I am not particularly anglophile (nor anglophobe, for that matter), having been there only once over the past decade, so the 4-visit requirement eliminates me...

    I have seen the ePassport gates lines longer and slower than the FastTrack lines.
