Just been reading up on the requirements of joining and one is that I must have been resident in the country for 5 years. I've been flitting between here and Norway over the last couple of years studying. Is it worth just lying? I've very few employment records or NI for either the time I was here or the time I spent over there so it's not as if I can't disguise the time away as just time I spent working cash in hand (which I've done for most of the time here). Constructive comments and flaming welcome.
