As per the above edit I received my conditional approval today - just over a month after the application was submitted.

I currently have an appointment in about four weeks, but am looking for one sooner. Does anyone happen to know how Amsterdam can be accessed? I have seen mentioned that appointments are occasionally available there, but I cannot spot it in the list of those available.

conditional approval here too ıntervıew scheduled 7 Dec JFK

Document Required for Interview:

A copy of your Conditional Approval Notification
For Citizenship of UNITED KINGDOM:
Passport
For Admissibility:
Passport
Visa

The letter also states:

This Letter inviting you to an interview;
A valid passport or permanent resident card. If you travel using more than one passport, please bring them to the interview so that the information can be added to your file. This provides you with the ability to use either passport at the Global Entry kiosk ;
Documents providing evidence of residency. Examples are a drivers license (if the address is current), mortgage statement, rental payment statement, utility bill, etc.
If you are a UK citizen and applied for Global Entry, and you are not a U.S. lawful permanent resident (green card holder) you must bring an original copy of your ACRO Disclosure Certificate (police certificate) to the interview.

Also conditionally approved today. Applied on 4th Sept.

Ironically I travelled to the US today. I checked GOES before setting off and it was still pending review but when I checked today after arriving it was conditionally approved.

I did actually bring my ACRO certificate just in case!

Travelling back from Newark but appointments there are only available from Sunday which will be after I am back


I have read in the other thread people have had some success with walk in interviews so might try that on the way back.

Have read that on some of the blogs too so well worth a shot.

After frantically checking today a cancellation just opened up in Sanford on the 9th October, which is much more convenient for me, so I'm all set. Good luck to all those still waiting, hope it's a quick response

I'll be going w/ my partner while she applies for hers in person on Oct 3 as well. Going to try dropping in at MIA, otherwise have an appointment booked the following week just before departure.

Larry is sure a well-liked guy among my British friends these days!
