Scheduled landing in JFK at 7.05pm.
Will I have enough time to make it to my 7.45pm interview?

Landing - domestic or international? Bags or no bags?

You can come a few minutes late.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

+1. Find out when they close but IME, appointment time means you come then and sign in and get called over 30 min later to meet the officer.

ETA: I forgot 7:45 was the last appointment of the day.

I have an appointment in JFK tomorrow for Global Entry ::)...

I tried calling Friday and Tonight (before 8:00) to find out if my appointment is still on due to the snow, but the phone lines were busy or no one answered. Is there a chance that the office will be closed tomorrow even though they didn't contact me?

I wouldn't go either way. Just reschedule it when possible. Not worth driving in this weather

Why? I assume they will plow the snow the whole night, by tomorrow morning it should be safe to drive. If I know for sure they are open I would probably go.

I just made the $100 purchase on my Plat. I want to downgrade it to PRG, PGGM another $100 and then cancel. Can I leave a $200 balance on my account? I will for sure the $100 GE reimbursement even though my card will become a PRG and be cancelled?

I have a GE appointment which I need to reschedule (unfortunately). I have a flight arriving into JFK at 6:20 from NRT (business) and we will have luggage. Latest GE appointments that day are 7:30 and 7:45. Is that enough time to get to the GE office after going through customs and everything else?

If you had GE I'd say yes.

Applied for my baby's GE a few days after getting passport. got approved, but delayed the journey to the GE office until 5 months later..

We had flow from LAX multiple times but had thought we would need to wait for an appointment etc, and were not willing to come early and schedule for the day of a flight.

We were in costco right near LAX so we did a walk in - they did not ask if we had an appointment.

We said it was for our baby - they gave us a number and 5 minutes later we were in getting the photo. They said they no longer require fingerprints for baby's (under 5?).

All in all, if your in LAX, it's well worth trying a walk in. Miami, when i checked had available appointments almost all day every day for months - so flying through there i definitely recommend popping in for a walk in.

I think maybe we should make a Wiki for GE walk in friendly places?

Just completed renewal.

Hoping I don't need another interview.

Approved four days after submission.

Needed another interview...

...but TSA came to me :)

Interview was done in my office. Final approval in < 5 mins. Good through 2022.
