Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. any idea how long security vetting take to come back?
  2. What level of clearance?

    Dodgier your past, or more colourful, the longer it will take. Expect months.
  9. my past is pretty much black and white, never been a bad boy!
  10. CS Ops don't need DV clearance at present - only the EW Ops going through Blandford have to get it, or anyone else going to Chicksands (Int Corps trades etc). It takes an age to do, and you have to have an interview and the like.

    The form is rather large. It then has to be filled out online too.
