My wife is a new greencard holder. She applied for Global Entry on 1/20/20 and received conditional approval while we were in Cancun on 7/3.

Great timing to receive it as we did the interview upon arriving in FLL. Interview was conducted in secondary inspection. Had to wait about 15 minutes for an interview.

Application processing or expiration?

My CA occurred in March of 2020 but my scheduled appointments for interviews have been repeatedly cancelled due to interviewing office closures. My next appointment is May 2021 well beyond the 365 day deadline to complete my application. Anyone know if they will cancel my app at 365 days?

Calls to CBP have been unanswered.

The deadline to complete the Global Entry enrollment interview has been extended to 545 days (18 months) from the date of the conditional approval.

what is the start date of the 5 year validation period?
The date you apply? or the date you finally get approved?
If it takes a year to get validated do you loose a year from the 5 year period?
I'm concerned with covid and the suspension for NY it will take a very long time.
My application got canceled after a long wait this year since I live in NY .
