Commonwealth Officers joining as a non-resident

Does anyone have any knowledge of the time it takes for vetting a non-resident Commonwealth citizen before they start the Potential Officer selection?

I have contacted RG HQ & seen all the information on the web (official & not sites) it says up to 5 years!
By then I will be too old & my current visa expires within the year.

Any advice or personal experience would be appreciated as I would prefer to be at Sandhurst sooner than later.

PMs appreciated too.


Pop in to a careers office and have a chat.

There are thousands of non-resident commonwealth soldiers in the British Army, it should not be a problem.
