Hello,

Is it possible for a permanent resident of the UK to join the British Army or does he/she have to go through the naturalisation process first?

I am asking because it takes 5 years of residency in the UK for a foreigner to obtain permanent residency, after that he/she has to go through an extra year before being eligible for naturalisation.

I am currently an EEA national.

Thank you in advance.

If they take odds and sods from all over the commonwealth then I don't see why they won't take you but I'm sure someone will be along soon to clear things up.

You need to hold a British or Commonwealth passport.

If you have permanent residency and can claim British Nationality then once completed you may join as soon as you have the British Passport as a normal applicant or if Commonwealth passport you join as an Overseas applicant, there may be Residency issues for certain jobs so speak with a Recruiter at your nearest ACIO.
