Dual Nationality?

#1
This question would be directed towards someone in the know.

I've have been on the army website and noticed that the INT CORPS website has been updated. There is a section that says that the applicant should not hold dual nationality? Myself, being from Northern Ireland, I feel this is quite an impossibility. Is there anyway around this or is it directed towards applicants outside the UK?

Cheers,

I can't see what the problem is. I thought that everybody in the Six Counties had a Brit passport with the option of an ROI passport. Is that wrong?

Although Northern Ireland is part of UK, it is still possible to obtain an Irish passport. I hold an Irish passport but not a British passport. I do know what OP Banner was, what relevance is it to my question?

Op Banner was a little British Army jaunt that went on for a week or two in the Six Counties.

When I said applicants outside the UK, I meant applicants from the EU? If I'm that stupid, maybe I should just join the paras?
Join the Salvation army, they dont care how many passports you have.

.......or, failing that, join FFL/LE: at the end of 5 years, you can have a nice shiny French one if you wish.

........plus a demand for French income tax, backdated 5years.

And they also give you a grace and favour flat in a shitty part of Paris. Allegedly.

The dual nationality problem is due to the security vetting process. You cannot hold SC clearance or higher without relinquishing a passport.

They don't have constant and regular access to very sensitive information. If they did then it would be a problem! :roll:

I had a mate on my course at Templer that had duel nationality (british and swedish) and he is still serving. I also thought that Irish passport holders could join the British Army.
