Canadian Immigration Installs New Self-Service Kiosks & Releases CanBorder eDeclaration Smartphone App

Buenos dias everyone!

I got an email from NEXUS this week about some changes coming to Canadian immigration procedures which will seem very familiar to US travelers. Starting this weekend, Canada is starting to phase out its paper declaration cards in favor of automated “Primary Inspection Kiosks”, similar to the Automated Passport Control (APC) or Global Entry (GE) kiosks used in most US airports.

These paper declaration cards are going the way of the dinosaurs.

New or Renewed US Passport? Remember to Update your Global Entry Online Account

Good morning everyone, happy Wednesday!  I just received my renewed passport (with extra pages and passport card) yesterday and wanted to share a quick tip with you.  Since Global Entry is tied to your fingerprints and your passport, you will need to update your Global Entry online account when you get a new or renewed passport, since the passport number and dates will change.  All you need to do is log into your Global Entry account online (https://goes-app.cbp.dhs.gov/main/goes).  I will give you a few minutes to remember your username and reset your password (that happened to me too).  If you have Sentri, NEXUS, or FAST, the process should be verify similar.

Big Hat Tip to my friends @TheFlightDeal on Twitter for the help.  I am also contractually obligated to give a second hat tip to my overlord @dvlsadvcate (Julian – The Devil’s Advocate).
