As far as I know, you will receive an allotment of guest badges when you get confirmation. For example, I was allotted no complimentary badges, but was able to purchase one additional badge at full price.

It's my understanding that you will be allotted your Pro badge + one additional guest badge.  Said Pro badge, at least last year, was for 4-Day w/PN as the only option, with the Guest badge being the same.

Presuming CCI doesn't change how they did things previous years, which is always a possibility...

Professional Registration Application is now Open!  If you are due to Renew, or if you a someone applying to be a Pro, now is the time to apply.  You can find info here:
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Reminder that besides those who work in the industry, educators and librarians are also eligible to be Comic-Con Pros!  I used to think this was limited to arts educators, but there is no such stipulation and it doesn't hurt to apply.'

In summer 2019 when I first applied to be a Pro I did not receive verification until AFTER Returning Registration; however when I registered/bought my badge as a Pro CCI automatically refunded me and it was a very easy process.  You will likely hear back before General Registration happens.

The deadline for submitting applications is Sept. 30th.

As a teacher myself, I attended 20 Comic-Con before I thought to apply as a Pro, and I found this an incredibly easy process: I recall not taking more than 15-20 mins filling out the application (which I of course sent in at the last minute/day of the deadline  ::) ) and I can tell you life is QUITE A BIT less stressful for Cons knowing I'm guaranteed a 4-Day + PN for myself and 1 guest. 

If there are any San Diego educators who are Pros/want to be Pros, feel free to DM me and I can talk to you about potentially joining a SDCC Educators book-club that's run by an OUTSTANDING individual who works at the SD County Office of Ed; the get-togethers are generally monthly and are currently happening via Zoom (and I am currently not able to participate due to my marching band business in the fall :-[ ).  If there are any educators who aren't 100% sure of what to submit for verification, PM me and I'll tell you what I did.

Good luck to current and future Pros in this process!

Thank you for posting this. I, too, attended SDCC 9 times before someone on this board messaged me and told me I could apply as a pro as an educator (I had mentioned in a post that I was an educator).
Like the above post mentioned, it's easy to apply and I've had no trouble with being approved.
New York Comic-Con also does a pro badge for educators. It's not free, but you can get all four days for $100 plus tax and shipping.
Again, having the pro badge takes off so much stress. I already booked my fight.
Now, just waiting on hotel lottery.
