Interviewed at SFO
If only all of life's problems had a solution like this one: from 4 months to 1 week with just a few clicks, app and support both flawless.
Appointment Scanner makes booking interviews super easy. It provided me the flexibility to cancel my appointment when I just wanted to sleep in and be assured that I would have another interview soon thereafter.
Stuck in Global Entry ‘renewal purgatory’? This $15 service can help you skip the line https://t.co/DdldwzpgPn— The Points Guy (@thepointsguy) August 13, 2020

If anyone out there is struggling getting a Global Entry appointment, I have to recommend using a website called https://t.co/apoQ320rIf. Tells you when any openings for up to 3 preferred centers or if there's closer date available. I got LAX appt in 3 Wks! Cost: $15 #globalentry— CS (@Corndog54321) August 28, 2020
Appointment Scanner cannot book interview appointments for you, or access any of your Global Entry account information.
This service monitors for open interview appointments that pop up due to last-minute cancellations. When we find an appointment that fits your requirements, you'll receive a text message or email (or both – your choice). This alert has a link to the Global Entry scheduler website, where you can login and claim the appointment.
While enrollment centers are currently closed until at least September 8th, 2020, many enrollment centers are still allowing people to book appointments now for dates after September 8th. Several New York locations for example, are currently accepting appointments for dates after September 8th and have plenty of capacity (as of 8/17/2020).
Other enrollment centers state "No appointments available for this location." What's confusing is that (to our knowledge) this message is actually shown for two different reasons:
"At capacity" - Under normal circumstances, "No appointments available for this location" typically means that the enrollment center is simply at capacity and all the appointments have been claimed. But appointments do still pop up, due to last-minute cancellations–this is where Appointment Scanner shines. Our users typically see several alerts each day, even at locations that say "No appointments available." During the pandemic closure, we're still seeing appointments pop up, but at a slower rate. Enrollment centers being closed means less cancellations in the short term.
"Not accepting new appointments" - Some of these locations may not be accepting new appointments at all until after September 8th, and may have removed open appointments from the system altogether. We don't have detailed information about how each location is handling the shutdown, since there's not an easy way to distinguish between "at capacity" and "not accepting appointments."
So here's how we're handling it: If you sign up while enrollment centers are closed, instead of 3 months of access, you will receive 3 months of access starting from the date when the enrollment centers finally reopen.
For example: If the enrollment centers do reopen on September 8th, 2020 you will have access to Appointment Scanner until December 8th, 2020. If the reopening is pushed back to October 8th, you would have access until January 8th.
We aim to give all our users more than enough time to recieve alerts, regardless of the shutdown situation at your enrollment center. Reach out with any specific questions or concerns and we'll do our best to help out!
You will receive alerts and access to your dashboard for 3 months from the date you pay.
Exception; If you signed up before September 8th, 2020, while enrollment centers were closed due to COVID, you get some extra time for free: your 3 months of access won't start counting down until September 8th, when the centers reopened. So you'll have access until December 8th, 2020.
Need more time? Just send us a chat or email and we'll be happy to extend your access!
Appointment Scanner works with all the Global Entry enrollment centers listed on the CBP website. Don't see your location? Shoot us a chat or email and we'll figure it out!
Not yet, but we're planning to add support for these programs soon! Shoot us a chat or email and let us know you're interested!
Sure! Many customers choose to use just one Appointment Scanner account for their family. When you receive an alert, just decide whether you want to book it for yourself or your family member.
Keep in mind that you can only register one phone number and one email address for each account. If you want to be able to notify family members separately and allow them to claim appointments for themselves, you'll need separate accounts.
