I have been conditionally approved by TSA's Global Entry

Customer Question
application. I am to set...
I have been conditionally approved by TSA's Global Entry application. I am to set up an interview for fingerprinting at Boston's Logan International airport. My husband's application went through quickly, he was told to go to our airport here in Manchester NH, which is Part of Boston's Logan airport. He was quickly fingerprinted and given his global entry card. I am given only a choice of Boston for my interview. The scheduling wait time is now February 2017! That is 8 months too long to wait. We are traveling to Seattle, Asia, Australia, Dubai,London in a less than a month. What and why is this? I am an artist/teacher. I have no issues, I am an American citizen born of Americans who have lived here since late 1900's. I am a mother, with a normal life. Why must I go to Boston, wait 8 months when I can just go to our airport as my husband has, and be done with it? I am using my iPhone because for some reason, when I open my account on my computer, they don't show my question even after entering payment creds. Please give a human response. Online, all I am getting is a computer generated response repeatedly. What can I do to speed this process up and how? Thank you

Hi Patti,

Unfortunately, there is no way for me to know what happened or why you are being asked to go to Boston Logan. There could be several reasons, not the least of which is that there are literally millions of people who are now seeking to join the Global Entry program.

When did your husband join the program?

This TSA problem caused impatience and frustration
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It's ok, I can't spend all this time waiting, time issues and response time isn't moving along. I will find another way to get my answers. I too am using an iPhone and it was not my choice to use, but SMS text was the only choice I was given last night to receive notifications, and it only allows me to send and receive. I am ending this chat. Thanks
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

OK, no problem, I understand. Since Global Entry is not administered by the TSA, you should not contact them. They will not be of any assistance.

Global Entry is a Trusted Traveler program, which is administered by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). If you have issues with a Trusted Traveler Program, you should contact the CBP at 855 - 873 - 4637.

Best of luck.
