Hi, britifa.gs. I'm from Poland. I have a question, because I want to join the British Army and I'm aware that I need to be a British citizen or a citizen of one of the countries of The Commonwealth to join. Where/what is the easiest way to do this?

Are there any ways I can become a citizen of one of these countries quickly? I do not want to wait very long.

You'll need to marry a British citizen or live in Britain for five years. You'll also need to fill out a mountain of paperwork, pass two exams and pay a £1200 fee. Sorry, we don't hand out citizenship to anyone who asks.

As I said in the other thread, there is no chance of you joining unless you're a British citizen. The only time I've seen a European in the British Army was a pair of Germans born in Paderborn who had a British parent. You're much better off joining the Polish army (who are a lot more competent than stereotypes allow for) or the FFL.

Join the FFL instead. There's tonnes of your fellow Pawels and Jans there and you get French citizenship after 5 years of service or immediately after you get injured in combat. IIRC they call it "French citizenship through spilled blood".

No. French by spilt blood happens if you are injured in combat, your citizenship is then fast tracked.

Trying to join FFL unless you have good level infantry experience is not likely to be successful despite the basic physical criteria not being that difficult. I was going to join after the army and could beat beat them by a very comfortable margin.

FFL isn't really a thing you do to get citizenship, it's more something for anyone who wants to be a professional soldier long term. It's also quite cult like in ways you don't find in other units.

You seem like a good guy, are you hoping to join the British Army for citizenship? If so you can just come over and find a job. British people have gotten used to Poles and we're happy to give you advice on settling in so you don't end up getting taken advantage of. As >>23680 has said citizenship is an arduous process but if you settle in you can get permanent residence and eventually become a citizen.

If you feel you should earn citizenship then the police force is open to EU citizens. There will be a written test but if you come to live in the UK and use English speaking imageboards regularly you can pass this. It will take awhile (my military application process took a year) so you have plenty of time to get adjusted.

If you want to get citizenship in another country through military service the American military may be a better bet. The pay is worse but they take care of you and American soldiers are decent people outside of the marines.
