Eligibility Q's (10 year residency and partner/spouse)


First of all, I have been in contact with the recruiting team with these questions and they have not been much help. Hopefully someone can assist me with their own experience/knowledge. Specifically, with regards to the INT Corps and vetting, is there a binding rule on the 10 year residency, for example does that exclude if you travelled within a commonwealth county for ~9 months?. Assuming this applicant has already been SC and references from within the country given when joining another branch of the forces.

Secondly, the navy intel officer site states the need for a 'spouse/partner must hold solo British citizenship'. Was hoping someone could tell me if there was a similar rule on this within the army.

Thanks in advance.
