06/20/2019 Applied
12/10/2019 CA (173 days)
12/13/2019 Interview (SFO)
12/13/2019 Approved (Received email a few minutes after the Interview concluded)

By following the SFO Global Entry Bot on Twitter (@GOESbot) I was able to grab an SFO interview opening quickly.

It appears the lack of SFO interview availability and delays, in general, have caught the attention of Congresswomen Jackie Speier.

A bit over 4 months. I was mentally prepared for 6-7 months wait. Glad it came through before that. Merry Christmas!

I applied July 30th (got pre-check last year though) and still waiting for CA. My spouse applied a week or so after me and got CA two weeks ago. We're leaving for Japan on January 4th. Not feeling very hopeful that I'll get the CA in time for this trip. Sigh.

My wife just received her conditional approval so we have another data point here:

Wife's application timeline (Green card holder)
Applied: Sep 18, 2019
Conditional approval: Dec 24, 2019 (received an alert via email)
Wait time: 96 days

We're currently outside the US and will fly back on Dec 30th with a 3hr layover at ORD so she will try to use on-arrival enrollment. Perfect timing!

Our household has 2 pending applications. I submitted my application within an hour of my wife's (I'm also a Green card holder) and an application for my 20 month old daughter (US citizen) on Sep 22 and we're both still waiting. My wife has much more extensive international travel history than myself (just a couple of countries within the past 5 years) and my daughter (none at the time of application).

I just hit 6 months. I've been doing googleing and going through these threads for awhile and don't see a consistent way to contact them to either complain or escalate. Anyone know the best way? 877-227-5511 (6/1/4/0) is all I've found, and it seems to have mixed luck.

12/26 edit: watched for interview appointments closely and was able to schedule January 2 instead of waiting until March.

I was under the impression PASSID is assigned when the application is submitted and doesn’t represent any other kind of processing.

either way, congrats on the fast processing.
