British Army applicants given six months visa
July 19, 2019 4:20 pm
All British Army applicants in some cases can re-apply if they fail their interviews while in the UK.
All applicants are given a six months visa to travel to the UK for interviews and British High Commissioner to Fiji Melanie Hopkins says these candidates should make good use of this opportunity.
Over fifty-three local applicants are currently waiting for their visa approval to travel to the UK for interviews and will stay with their sponsors during this period.
Hopkins says they are aware of the big investment done by Fijian families to send applicants over to the UK and are urging all applicants to make good use of the support from the Royal British Legion here in Fiji.
“In some cases, there is a chance to have another go but it’s really important to do as much preparation as you can to read all of the guidance, to speak to all the British legion here who have so much expertise on this assessment and have the best to get through. We know that there are very strong families and other networks and I know that a lot of people, a lot of Fijians in the UK has focused on how to help brothers and sisters back here when this assessment comes.”
Hopkins says there are a number of stages to the recruitment process and all applications are done online.
The British Army has received applications from commonwealth citizens mostly from Fiji, India, and Tonga.
