Received my conditional pre-approval for global entry renewal and there are 0 available appointments for the next 12 months either via Zoom or at my local airport. Any tips on when to check or how to get one? Current authorization expires in January.

I completed my interview via global entry upon arrival. Flawless for me and no appointment needed. Availability may vary as this was pre-covid.

Yikes, you actually need an interview? My wife and I just did ours last month and had it approved via email within a week.

Oddly yes. Not sure what might have flagged it as most of my travel was Canada, but I did do a trip through Asia. No criminal anything in my background.

Update for anyone curious, it looks like they extended benefits for global entry for 24 months after your expiration to allow time to schedule an interview.

I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
