Hi gents, South African here, I wish to join the Army but have hit a snag in my application process, I need a sponsor. Can you guys advise on why a sponsor is needed? I assume this is for lodging between training etc? Anyhow, let me know, would also not mind if any volunteers would be able to assist me with my application by sponsoring me? Cheers. Regards. LJ EDIT: I just found out that the sponsor is there only to facilitate communication and confirmation of identity between the application / VISA holder and the government. OK, well, if anyone is willing, please let me know!
