ive been pending review for the past 6 months for a goddamn renewal. it subsequently expired. with the loss of global entry, you also lose precheck.



:wtc:
im pretty sure it said on the website that if itt expired while you were in review it still would work.

Tried to do entry on arrival. Got to ATL two hours before interviews stop. Got to immigration officer 45 minutes before interviews stopped. He said "sorry, they already took the last person." God the government is so good at being so fucking bad at almost everything. Obviously that's the last place I'm going to go full Karen, so just sucked it up (read: ranted to my wife for the next hour). I'm mainly irritated because I paid for it like 6 months ago.. so they're just sitting on my money.

Interviews are booked several months out, but if you're lucky and check a lot apparently you can snag a closer spot if someone cancels.

I'm still waiting on my passport so I can start the process.

this was my case

booked an appointment that was 3 months out

checked daily for cancellations and ended up getting one within a month

got my global entry card about 2 weeks after the 10 minute interview

fresh coast.
They did away with the Mobile Passport Control line at IAH. I used to use it as well. I still have PreCheck but my GE expired long ago. The MPC line was usually just as fast as GE so I was just using that. Came back from Mexico two months ago to find they no longer have MPC. THe agent said it was going away everywhere but not sure about that.
thats odd IAH is still listed here, doubt they would get rid of it everywhere who knows tho

i did earlier in the year, was a couple months to get an appointment for the interview, which was a joke of an interview. just make the closest appointment and then check every day to see if you can reschedule closer as people cancel.

Had my interview this afternoon. Only took like 5 minutes. CBP guy said you only need the card when driving across the border. He said I should get an email in a couple days with my GE # and I can use that when booking flights and it will have it printed on my ticket

I'm planning on getting in on re-entry next time I travel.

If you want to snag an appointment and have some programming skills (or access to a neighborhood nerd) it's pretty easy to hit the global entry appointment API looking for cancellations.

no, it doesent.
if you go to check on the status of your review does it not say something there about that. im 100% positive it did when i renewed mine

something like due to the backlog and blah blah blah things are taking longer but if it expires while in renewal review itll still work or some crap to that effect

My dads renewal took two years submitted right around start of COVID. He was still using it for almost a year after expiry.

:o Mine was renewed after three days a few months back. Being GOV and having TS Clearance might have helped with that though. Was shocked and originally thought the approval message was because I fucked up the renewal application.

It's been a mess, mine expired last year and I haven't been able to book an appointment to renew it. Fucking thing sucks

Already had it, but renewed last week. The renewal went through in less than 24hrs. Updated card arrived in < 1week. :dunno:

I renewed both my passport and GE this year. Passport I had back in 6 weeks. GE renewal took zero time at all. Submitted it online, got approval back like 2 days later.
