Hello all. I'm currently in the soldier application process, first job choice is OPMI. Got a deferral at the minute as they detected a slight heart murmur at ADSC, got the routine second opinion at the hospital on Monday. I'm sure it'll be fine. But... I've read on here and the Army website that it is Int Corps policy (or the DVA's? With the Developed Vetting) that applicants must have both parents being British citizens. During my second interview at the AFCO I told my recruiter I was worried my application into the Int Corps might fail as my mother isn't a British citizen (she's from the Philippines, has 'indefinite leave to remain' in the UK) and my father, who was a British citizen, died when I was 16. Also my mother unfortunately, as far as I'm aware, (we don't really speak much now) has a criminal record for an assault of some kind (not sure how serious). Stupidly, I forgot to tell my recruiter at the time about her supposed criminal past. I don't have a criminal record whatsoever. My recruiter went off to ring Chicksands to ask about the citizenship of my parent's, and basically came back with "they said that although the rules might say what they say, it's judged on a case by case basis and it seems you're the type of person they're looking for at the moment so you should be fine provided you pass Int Corps selection". I was inclined to believe at the time that I might be okay, but recently I've been thinking it could quite possibly stop me. I don't want to waste my time getting ready for and doing Int Corps selection and then being refused because of this. Could anyone please give any advise on what might happen? Is this going to be a problem or not?
