Can a British citizen join the Australian army?

Thinking about moving to Australia once I finish college and join the army. Since Australia is part of the commonwealth will I be able to join the AU army?

Yes, you can. You have two options that I know of, but you should really do your own research into this before you make any concrete decisions. You can join the British military and, after your initial enlistment period, transfer to the Australian army. Im not exactly sure how this is done but I do have a few friends who have done it. Your other option is to move to Australia and gain residency and apply for the army. To join up you only have to be a resident, not a citizen. Its generally easier for British people to get residency in Australia than people from other countries, but its still not super easy. Also, it is very difficult to get in to the army at the moment, its basically full. Even when they were having a high intake only about 8 or 9 out of 10 people that apply for the army actually are accepted, and a fair few of those request to leave the army while still in training. The first option is good because when applying to live in Australia you have to show what you can contribute to society (ie that you can work) and already having military experience will be a huge plus. Also, you generally get to keep your rank when transferring. The down side you will have to continue to live in the UK for a few years until your initial enlistment is over (i don't know how long it is in the uk but here it is usually 4 years). The second option is better to get you here straight away, but youd be taking a chance. Some people for you to contact would be an Australian Defence Force Recruitment center, and also have a look on the website, www.defencejobs.gov.au And contact your own military recruiters as well.

No you cant, the only way that you will be able to join the Australian Army straight from the UK is if you are a British Officer then you can apply for Transfer , but other then that you have to become an Australian Citizen or a permanent resident.. i know this because i e-mailed the British army asking if i could join being an Aussie Citizen hope that answers ur question.. good on ya for considering tho :)
