In my research I have read that to join the RMR you need to have lived in the UK for at least five years. Other things I have read indicate that as long as you are Common Wealth your are eligible. I am a Canadian looking at the possibility of moving over once I finish my engineering degree in December. Does the eligibility of a foreigner depend on the local unit? Would a waiver be granted if they considered me a dependable candidate? Would it depend on my visa status? Thanks in advance if anyone has advice on this issue. I realize I am eligible for the regulars as a Canadian buddy of mine joined. I am asking specifically about the reserves.
