Dual Nationality?

Discussion in 'Int Corps' started by paddington_88, Jan 15, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  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?

    Last time I Looked NI was part of the UK, PS do you know of OP Banner?
  3. 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?

  4. I don't think the Int Corps is for you if you don't know NI is in the UK. FFS

  5. 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?
  6. 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?
  7. Op Banner was a little British Army jaunt that went on for a week or two in the Six Counties.

  8. Join the Salvation army, they dont care how many passports you have.
  9. .......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.
  10. And they also give you a grace and favour flat in a shitty part of Paris. Allegedly.
  11. WaaaaaaaaaaH!!
  12. The dual nationality problem is due to the security vetting process. You cannot hold SC clearance or higher without relinquishing a passport.
  13. Half of fiji is in the British Army ffs,whats the problem !
  14. They don't have constant and regular access to very sensitive information. If they did then it would be a problem! :roll:
