Applied on the 26th for my entire family (5). We were all approved in 4 days and had our appointments and final approval yesterday. All completed in less than a week. Did we win the lottery?

I wonder if the backlog has gotten so bad they are starting to fast track more applicants. Good for you but bummer for me. I am still looking at months of waiting. Congrats though.

Hi There,

can you please share which state was that I'm thinking to apply for my whole family too and traveling in 3 weeks from now.

Thank you

Angry

Applied and paid July 24th, still waiting for conditional approval. Current CASS, KCM, and Pre-Check. Already missed using GE for my international trips this year. Contacted my senator's constituent services department and was told that they could look into it, but that 'officially' raising any awareness might actually 'unofficially' delay the application even longer. <redacted by moderator>. So...still waiting...

6/6/2019 and still waiting.

Applied 6/6/2019 and 181 days still waiting. Finally got thru on 1-855-873-4637 and spoke to a live human who told me they couldn't do anything until it has been 8 months. This is the 4th extension of the deadline quoted to me when I applied. My husband applied mid Aug and was approved in less than 2 weeks. Anyone have suggestions on someone else to contact. Very frustrating.

Applied For Global Entry

I applied June 25th and still have been waiting. I have precheck already. I was told at 4 months to wait 5 and at 5 to wait 6, just a long never ending game 🤣

I'm glad you posted this. I was starting to think everyone who applied after 10/1 was getting approved in days.

Been following this thread for a while. Applied for GE on 6/19, still waiting for CA on 12/5 (169 days)
I've reached out twice via email to follow up and was met with the cookie cutter response except they just extended the deadline...so frustrating
