It is possible to use the Global Entry Program with visas other than your tourist visa, for example a TN or L visa. To do so, you must visit a Global Entry enrollment center to have your new visa associated with your Global Entry profile. The same is true if your original visa enrolled with Global Entry expires or is changed for any reason. If you do not use the correct visa for your purpose of travel, you will have immigration problems, which could include having your Global Entry membership cancelled. For example, if you enter on Global Entry with your B1/B2 visa for TN work, but did not register or do not have a valid TN visa. For further questions on which visas can and cannot be used with global entry, please see the following address: http://www.globalentry.gov/faq.html
