    Your question is rather vague!
    At what stage of the process are you currently?

    So you must have an Afco assigned to you?

    That would be the best person to receive info from.

    Once you have passed the triage phone call stage, all other stages must be completed in UK.

    Initially, if resident overseas, you will have been processed by the Overseas Desk at London Armed Forces Careers Officel (AFCO) and will continue to be unless, upon arrival in UK you wish to be processed via an AFCO elsewhere in UK, closer to where you intend staying upon arrival.

    The problem with continuing to be processed via London AFCO is there are several thousand applicants and limited resources, so it is often quicker to request your application is transferred to continue to be processed more quickly.

    At present you will have been advised what is required prior to booking your flights to UK, before getting a visa and notifying them of your availability dates in UK to complete the face to face medical examination, the Pre Joining Fitness Test, Selection Interview, Security Clearance and PRMC.

    It is stressed, there's no point booking flights until you are 100% fit and ready to pass PRMC upon arrival because otherwise it will be very expensive to stay in UK whilst you get yourself adequately fit to pass.

    It's pretty much up to the individual.

    Once the applicant has the money for a flight, a UK sponsor, a Visa on their passport & a UK residential address, they should get in touch with their afco to declare they are "good to go" about 3 months before their intended arrival date in UK.

    Assuming you are 100% physically prepared to come to UK, have a visa, sponsor, the money to book your flight and a UK residential address:

    If you have already notified the overseas desk of your readiness to come to UK to complete selection, you can, if you wish, email an alternative AFCO local to where you intend staying whilst in UK and request your application is transferred to be processed. London AFCO is processing literally thousands of overseas applications, other afcos are processing much fewer numbers. Once the overseas desk verifies basic eligibility criteria an ovesrseas application can be processed in any UK afco.

    You can find the contact details of the nearest afco to your intended UK address by following the link and scrolling down the page to
    Find your nearest Armed Forces Careers Office (AFCO):
