We know some of you have been trying to sign up for the British Army as your way of obtaining a permanent residency status in Britain.

Already, there are hundreds of Ghanaians who are also serving in the US Army.

Previously, as your research would have shown you, you had to have lived in Britain for at least 5 years before you can be recruited.

Well, that is about to change.

The Guardian is reporting that foreign nationals will be allowed to join the British army despite never having lived in the country, as part of plans to help stem a worsening recruitment crisis in the armed forces.

As a matter of fact, you don’t need to have lived in Britain before you apply to join their army.

All that matters now is that you’re a Commonwealth Citizen.

That is if your mother country is any of the 53 Commonwealth member countries.

The British Ministry of Defence is expected to announce on Monday (today) that it will no longer require those joining the armed services from Commonwealth countries to have lived in Britain for five years.

Under the policy, recruits will be considered for all forces including the Royal Navy and the RAF, with applications opening in early 2019.

The army will begin the admissions process from early next year, while the navy and RAF will start immediately, the Guardian reports.

The UK armed forces are short of 8,200 soldiers, sailors and air personnel, a report found earlier this year, the worse shortage since 2010.

Now all you have to do is to wait for the application forms to be made available.

The British Army is a prestigious force with centuries of warfare under their belt.
