No card

Only US Citizens, US Legal Permanent Residents and Mexican nationals are issued Global Entry cards.

Ok team, quick update. Finally got final confirmation of acceptance tonight - 6 calendar days. Not quite the 24-48 hours the officer said but I’m happy.

I'm arriving on an AA flight from LHR in December into JFK Termnal 8 at around 7pm. Will there be enrollment on arrival available at that time? USBPC website states
"Terminal Eight America Airlines, Booth #1 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m" Those opening times must rule out a lot of EU arrivals.

In the US, 12:00 am is midnight or 0:00.

Maybe a record?

I have a short notice trip to the US planned this week, so I thought I'd try my luck with renewal of expired (by 6months) GE, to hopefully beneft from EoA rather than the hassle of trying to make schedules match with an interview by appointment.

UK Border Force submission Fri 2pm (23rd Sept)
UK Border Code received Sun 1am (25th Sept)
GE renewal form submitted via TTP Sun 9am (25th Sept)
Full approval (not conditional) received Mon 11am (26th Sept)

I was hoping (against the odds) to get conditional approval in time for Enrollment on Arrival later this week - no need for that now!

Hoping to do Interview on Arrival at JFK T7 next month. 19.15 arrival. What are the chance of the interview booth being manned at that time?
I was able to book a Zoom interview once I was conditionally approved. There were earlier dates but my interview was today. I was in London and the CBP officer was in Chicago. The interview started promptly, took around 5 minutes and my status updated to approved a couple of minutes later.

It was a very efficient process. UK access code to full approval in 25 days.

Got a rather strange situation here - applying for GE renewal (expiring next year)

Paid GBP42 for the border force fee (email received confirming the fee was processed) - this was in early August

I have yet to see a code for me to proceed for renewal - any idea how to seek assistance? I understand even if the background check is rejected (which I doubt) I should've received a notification of some sort.

Thoughts and comments appreciated!

Wow, amazingly lucky that you got a Zoom interview - I've been looking on and off for months to see if I could get one and have never seen one available.

Worked like a gem! Been struggling to find an email/contact point and they reverted with the code soon after my email. Thanks a lot!
