I've been looking at some of the posts made by other overseas applicants but there are far too many that I thought it would be easier to get a direct answer. I like to think that I have a unique situation, I was born in HongKong a year before HK was handed over to China but I was able to keep my British passport since my father is a Brit himself. After a few years I then moved to the philippines and since 2011 I now live in Australia. I chatted with people in the Royal Navy website to see if it was an Issue but all I was told was that so long as I had a British passport I was fine but it can't be that simple. Surely there would be heavy security checks on me for living overseas, I've only visited the UK once when I was 8 years old. Also I am a citizen of 2 other countries, Philippines and Australia. Would this possibly cost more complications or regardless by simply being a UK citizen by default I should not have problems enlisting to become a royal Marine? Cheers for any replies and sorry if these questions where answered in some other post.
