UOTC and Foreign nationality?

Discussion in 'OTC and ACF' started by The_Cheat, Feb 3, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A friend of mine just asked if her Uni friend, who is from Lithuania, could join the OTC.

    He was told by someone (not sure who or in what capacity) that he needed to 'get permission from his embassy."

    Does this sound right? I thought the rules were the same as for the rest of the Army but I might be wrong.

    Can some one from Lithuania who is studying in the England join an OTC? and if so, are there any specific things that he would have to do?

    Thanks in advance,

  2. It's the same rules as with the Regulars and TA. "British and Commonwealth citizens".

    Therefore, unless they have dual nationality, which I'm guessing not, then no.
     
  3. Thanks Birdie, that's what I thought.

  4. Unless they are in the military in that country when there is the possibility of some exchange set up. I believe B & C citizen rule applies to enlistment
     
  5. Wasn't there a German lad on this forum who served in a Scotland based OTC?
     
  6. That is true.

    However, if you want the "normal cases" in black and white then:
