Hello, and welcome!

My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you today.

From the this site (http://www.travelpulse.com/news/airlines/global-entry-vs-tsa-pre-check-vs-nexus-which-is-best-for-you.html), you can see the differences between TSA Precheck and NEXUS:

TSA Precheck:

• For U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents

• $85 for a five-year membership

• Apply online and then make an appointment at one of several enrollment centers around the country to provide fingerprints and identification.

• No passport required

• Mostly for frequent and business travelers who can go through separate security lines and leave on their shoes and belts, and keep their laptops in the bag.

• Adults approved for Pre-Check can go through security with minors ages 12 and under, even if that minor child has not gone through a Pre-Check application on his own.

-------------------
NEXUS:

• For U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, Canadian citizens and lawful permanent residents of Canada.

• No passport is required.

• $50 for a five-year membership.

• Pre-enroll online, visit an enrollment center for an interview, provide fingerprints and verify ID.

• NEXUS is the Canadian version of Global Entry, offering expedited processing at airports and land borders when entering the U.S. and Canada. The good news is, it’s less expensive and children are also free until they are 18 years of age. The bad news is, there are only a handful of enrollment centers for NEXUS, as opposed to dozens for Global Entry, and they are located near the Canadian borders in places like upstate New York, Maine, Montana and Washington State.
