      Nousername1 Wow 1 year. That is very long wait. I met my investigator the last week in August, she came came to my work place last week and met with my references. I really hope that I don’t be waiting that long for my to clear. Although she did said that my case seems pretty simple.

      Do you have an extensive background like work history outside travels.

      @V_AntVBP you know what the most frustrating thing is that you cant even email anyone about I have emailed everyone I could think of and even call OPM to see if they could help and nothing. It's a frustrating situation but just gotta hang in there

      Emails sent out and no response yet. Waiting on a generic response regardless. Background not extensive, lived in the same town and worked with 3 employers in the last 12 years.

      Nousername1. When did you take your poly? Did you sign up for provisional

  • Drug cleared and got the call today. EOD 1/28/20 JFK FLETC 2/12/20. 17-10 announcement.
    Good luck to all that's still in the proces. If you ever feel frustrated about the process, remember this guy here with 5 polys and 2 NOPAs lol and exactly two years in the process.

    p.s. I took my 5th poly on this date of 2018 and passed lol

      V_AntCBP Good deal. I'm on the fast track program they give to vets, but medical is still slow as hell and I STILL haven't heard from background e-QIP.

      @TheArcher...My medical appointment was 7/19/2019 and 3 weeks after they asked to fill out some papers from the VA to be sent back to them via before 8/20/2019. Fortunately, I was able to see my VA provider quickly and completed the paperwork. I submitted the paperwork on a Friday and it took a week that they cleared me for medical. Im VRA 19-9 applied 7/10/2019. Right now I' still waiting for the Poly. I as told after my SI interview that it will take 4-6 weeks to get schedule. Goodluck!

      TheArcher It is llike a physical exam that my provider had to certify if I can do the CBP job and some related to my sleep apnea. I had to submit a compliance report(3 months of CPAP use) and results of sleep study. Also, They asked for a copy of the VA rating and the reasons how the VA ratings was granted/denied.

    • For your information. Direct Hire & Regular Applicants are under Competitve service which is a year probation. (Southwest Border or a list of available ports in need of officers) VRA is under Exceptive service which is a 2 year probation. After you complete your 2 year trial period, you will be converted into a permanent Competitve service (VRA advantage is you can negotiate your port).

        Yeah you can request for Houston as a VRA applicant. I read someone got Houston as a port of entry. You will make a choice when you get the final offer.

        TheArcher Yep - I'm VRA and the guy who asked for Houston and got it. Someone over at Delphiforums I think was saying that as a VRA applicant if you don't meet the 2 year probation they (not sure who "they" is) will work with you to place you in another GS job. Not sure if there's any fidelity to that though.

        showtime15 Is it harder to get the port or the airport? Can you request Hobby airport?

        TheArcher not sure. I would imagine that they are all tied together technically as "one" port and with seniority you can get the seaport or Hobby. I just asked for Houston in general. From what I've read you have to have seniority to move to the seaport in other places so I imagine it's likely the same in Houston.

    • Have anyone received the call recently for Swb? If yes, what porta are still available? A recruiter told me el paso is not longer available

          • Any CBPO's here that can PM me? Especially if you work in NY/NJ area. I just have a few questions because I'm considering whether it will be worth it to leave NYPD and I wish to compare benefits/quality of life etc. Thank you!

                I signed a provisional also but I still have to wait for my background to get cleared. I just don’t how they pick who gets granted a provisional and who doesn’t. 19-2 regular announcement.

                David1984 I'm convinced that they drop Plinko chips like on Price is Right and if lands in the middle slot then provisional is granted, any other slot and they put you in the pile that says wait for BI to complete.
