    Nationality and residency

    Nationality

    The nationality requirements for each job are given in each of the job files on this website.

    To apply for any RAF job, you must be a citizen of the UK or the Republic of Ireland, or have been a Commonwealth citizen since birth, or hold dual UK/other nationality.

    For security reasons, there are stricter nationality requirements for some jobs. For a few, you must have been a UK citizen and UK resident since birth.

    Residency

    You must have lived in the UK for the five years immediately before you apply to join. For a few jobs, the qualifying period is 10 years.

    If your period of residency has been broken by certain specific circumstances, your application could still be accepted.

    I think there are certain issues with non British citizens joining the RAF as officers, this is the case for the Royal Marines. So it might not be at all possible.

    started a topic Irish joining the RAF

    Irish joining the RAF

    I knw there's a lot of discussion about Irish citizens joining the British Army as ground troops but is there the same sort of interest within the Irish Air Corp to fly with the RAF.

    As a pilot surely the desire to fly Harriers, Tornados & the extensive list of jets & planes they have must draw away a percentage of young pilots who want to see action as joining the BA allows troops to see action.

    Are there any here who have experience of this & if so how did they find it?
