Hi Guys

Im a Commonwealth applicant

I recently requested my application for the Royal Marines on the Royal Navy website (Entered my details and hit apply)

However I haven't received any response back as of yet (Email or phone call.) and its now been about 10 days since I applied.

Is this normal ?

(Or is there anything I can do to speed things up as I am really keen on joining)

Cheers
Thanks

There is a known issue with the processing of applicants from Commonwealth nations. It is likely that the volume of applications has created a backlog.

I say "likely" because a Freedom of Information Act request asking for specific reasons has so far been 'stonewalled' by the Royal Navy.

If @The guide or @CHUB! spot this they are best placed to give you credible guidance.

Thanks Chelonian , appreciate it.

Should I just hang in there for a response so long ?
