Hang in there, I'd imagine you're only a few days out.

Also I upped my interview to Sept 3 at the Port Huron office. Anyone know if there's anything to see/do while I'm there? Was planning on driving up from Chicago and driving back.

I have GE already.
Applied for Nexus in mid-August.

Do I have to go through an interview in the US again if I already have GE? Is there one in Canada? Anyone know if it takes the same amount of time?

You have to be interviewed by a CBSA agent at a Nexus enrollment site. They mostly in Canada, but there are some in the US (along the US/CAN border). CBP and CBSA work side-by-side so if CBP needs to ask you something, they'll be right there.

Thank you.

As a data point, I just got conditional approval (again, application in mid-august).

Looks like CBSA interviews are really stuffed up, earliest ones are December.
Anyone had luck with constantly checking for earlier cancellations, or even just dropping by the office when you land in airports and seeing if they will take you?

I'm starting to feel left out!!

Finally, a month after Justen, Digag and Townshend, the four members of my family got "conditionally approved" today.

So:
- Submitted on July 10th.
- Conditionally approved on September 20th.

BTW: when I called the NEXUS office after eight weeks, the guy told me that we had been ok'd by the US side on August 21st.

When I checked for an appointment (for me only), the first available date was September 27th in Champlain, or December 17th at Trudeau.
Since September 27th was no good, I took the next available date: October 24th in Champlain.

But, a few hours later, I logged back in and there was a cancellation for September 30th at Trudeau. I, of course, took it!

Nat.

thank you Nat! you saved me big time - I also had my appointment set for November 14th at Trudeau, so I logged in today and found a slot for Sept 26th which I immediately confirmed - in other words it is always better to check for earlier dates by logging in a couple of times daily. Good luck!!
