    I received this email this morning from CPB.....

    "On July 12, 2011, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) began issuing Global Entry radio frequency identification (RFID) cards to new Global Entry members (not already in possession of a NEXUS or SENTRI card).

    Global Entry members who were approved for the program prior to July 12, 2011, and are not current NEXUS or SENTRI card holders, may login to their Global Online Enrollment System (GOES) account and request a Global Entry card for a $15 card issuance fee. For more information on Global Entry and the Global Entry card, please go to

    The card operates as a SENTRI card for Global Entry members. Global Entry card holders must follow all program rules for SENTRI when using their card at land or sea ports of entry, including having their vehicle registered and inspected prior to driving it in the SENTRI lane. For more information on SENTRI, please go to

    The Global Entry card can be used to travel into the United States from Canada and Mexico at the land border using the NEXUS and SENTRI lanes. For U.S. citizens, the Global Entry card is also a Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) compliant document for land and sea travel. For more information on WHTI please visit
    Global Entry cards are not valid for use to travel into Canada in the NEXUS lanes or at the NEXUS kiosks at Canadian preclearance airports. For more information on NEXUS please visit

    IMPORTANT NOTE: This card may not be used at the Global Entry kiosks. Please use your passport or U.S. Lawful Permanent Resident card."
