Homeland Security Cleared my Global Entry Renewal in One Day

I was shocked. I just hope the IRS will be just as efficient with my tax return. Has anyone ever known an application to turned around that quickly?

Is this code for 'enema'?

I have to fly to Laredo to get my interview - Austin has no interview times - indefinitely.

That reminds me - passport renewals due this year!

I envy you Jet Set girls "on the go".

I got a notification in April of last year advising me that my Global Entry was going to expire shortly, but that they were granting everyone a one-year extension due to COVID and the backlog. Then It wanted me to make an appointment for a new interview for my renewal. So I started looking at availability (this is in L.A.) and there was nothing for MONTHS. Then I thought I'd lucked out and scored an appointment in May! Whoo! Then I noticed it was May of 2023!

Anyway, about a month ago I got a notification that my renewal had been approved (based on the info I input when I scheduled my renewal appointment.) So--no appointment needed! And my new card (good for another five years) arrived in the mail last week.

Wow, OP. You must be really important and really beloved.

Anyone know why your refund can't be instant?

I used the online passport renewal pilot program last year and it was really easy. It was only a few weeks turnaround time.

Not even close. Just more shocked then anything. I was prepared for 6 weeks to 6 months, not one day.

I was having a hard time securing an appointment to renew my GE. I even tried while clearing customs at multiple US airports with no luck. There's a service called Appoint Scanner (literally enter these two words together with a .com in your web browser). You can sign up for a 30 day subscription for a small fee and receive text notifications of appointment availability. This worked for me and I had an appointment scheduled fairly quickly. Warning 1: you have to act immediately when you receive a notification or someone else will snag it. Warning 2: you might receive multiple texts a day and they don't stop until the end of the 30 day period. This can get annoying if you've already scheduled an appointment.

r7 They usuallly get processed in a few days unless there's a problem. And you're using direct deposit. But Congress also prevents issuance of refund for returns with Earned Income Credit until February.

R5 Same here. Exactly. Also in LA.
