re enlisting

i put in an application for re enlistment and the careers officer told me it could take upto 90 days does any one know if it could take longer as it is coming up to 90days and iv heared nothing, i have call a few times but i dont want to pester them. thanks dean
Not wanting to jump to conclusions but asking about SNLR and then asking about re-enlistment doesn't look to good in any ones eyes.

If you were discharged SNLR then that might be an indicator as to why your 90 days are nearly up and you've heard nothing.

If you were not SNLR'd then contact your ACIO's and ask them!!!!
all i want to know is do they have to give me an answer or do i just take it as no if i hear nothing. i know it was my fault for the way i got out and there is no one to blame but me but my life is on hold till i find out what is going on.
We've all made mistakes inour youth, but it's time to grab the bull by it's horns and if re-enlistment is what you are really after then put some pressure on the recruiters and get them to do their job.

I'm not saying be abusive but pressure them to give you a straight answer so you can move on. In whatever direction that may be.

I hope you've learnt you're lesson on whatever you're indiscretion was, if you have best of luck.
Have you heard anything yet?
Im in a similar situation, I have re-applied after a good few years of being out, it has taken about 3 months for them to tell me that I have been accepted back in, Im sure they will tell you either way, just give them another call and again the week after and so on.
I think it does take that bit longer for us that have previously served, depeneds on your age too.
Good luck
It took them almost 6months for me to be cleared to rejoin! the whole process has taken 15months from enquiring to returning to training next week, have a new nig service number too! Just have a word and see what they say, keep chasing them and they willgive you an answer to get you off their backs
Hi im hoping to re-enlist
I was told by my co and medical officer that i would be discharged as temp unsuitble on compshinate grounds but it has snlr on my discharge papers.
Due to My mother being ill an my brother at the time was 12 and he was not being looked after properly and on the verge of being taken into care! i was refused leave so i then tryed to get guardianship of him which i was told the only way i could do that was if my mother agreed which she refused because the benfit she got for him paid for her addiction.
So it seemed at the time that claiming i had self harmed was the quickest and only way far me to get home to take care of my brother!so i told them i had taken an overdose an the process started!
Now i want to re enlist an wondering what i can do if i am turned down!
Who do i appeal to?
Should i send a letter when to people who decide exsplaing the situation at the time?
Sorry about spelling and that! thanks for taking the time to read
You don't say how long ago this all was. If the issues you mentioned are likely to happen again there will probably be little chance of you getting back in. However, if your brother is now of an age that he can look after himself (legally as well as being physically able). and/or your mum is no longer "ill" you may stand some chance. I would think your best bet would be to go to the ACIO and lay your cards on the table - get it from the horse's mouth rather than relying on advice given on here.

Thanks for your reply
It was 2003 when i left
My brother is now 18 an able to take care of his self an theres not a chance id be throwing it all away agin.
i want to get my life an career back on track
Ye i will go an see them and exsplain

Was wondering if I could get some help?I was discharged in 04 on papers my discharge is SNLR (yes I was a Cnut) but I'm now in Australia and was wondering if anyone could tell me if I'm eligable for the Oz army. Have tried to talk to someone this end but they won't speak to me until my resdency papers come through. A heads up on my chances would be nice, if anyone can help much apprciation.


I was out for only 7 Month's before i applied to get back in and it still took a good 3 Month's!

I got a call saying be at this unit next week!

I kept badgering them as well so keep at it.

All i can say from this experience is guys if your thinking of leaving, have a long hard think as it ain't as rosy as you think out there.

Has taken me 9 months to get back into the air corps. Worth it though, civvy street is shite
I was discharged back in may 2006 from ITC with a QR 1975 para 9.414 SNLR with exemplary services, for a girl stupidly enough to which we ended up breaking up 2-3 months later. I relised I made a mistake as soon as I walked out of them gates. I tried rejoining not long after and didnt get accepted back, I recently went down to my careers offices to rejoin and now have to wait 4 weeks for my docs to come back from Glasgow, now I know I've made mistakes like every soldier who discharged and rejoining. just like to say good luck to you all and hope everyone including me gets back in.
I left the Regulars in 2001, joined the T.A coupled with my Civilian Job, completed a couple of tours and decided to re-enlist. The biggest problem was the DVA, even thought my clearance and in -date was valid, the overall process took 9 months, and that was with calling the DVA everyweek. For anyone who is successful in re-enlisting, be prepared to be back at R.D's soonest,I was back serving within 2 weeks of being told my application was successful.
so u all harp on about it being the recruiter thats at fault. i can tell u from experiance that it isnt. glasgow have got a fair backlog of stuff and the recruiters do call them on a weekly basis. at the end of the day if u re-enlist u count as a stat for the office and they all have targets to met, so i dont think they are fobbin u off at all.
So, is there a time-frame from having left the regs to re-enlistment where you'd be required to do basic training again?

Ie. I came out just over a year ago and I'm considering re-enlisting. Not much call on civvy street for an ex-tankie. Would I have to do basic AGAIN or would I go straight onto phase 2 of a chosen trade?
Not that it'd sway me if I did. Just that having done Herrick and Telics fairly recently it seems silly having to learn the basics again which are second nature.

Cheers in advance and I'm sorry if it's a silly question, I've just been curious and couldn't find any info on it anywhere.
