    Hello there, I just submitted my credentials from a commonwealth country to AFCO about 2 days ago;
    1. How long will it take for them to inform me of the next phase?
    2. Will I be told if some credentials are missing or any other related issue?

    A good heads up for you mate, is that the application can take from 6 months to anything up to a year, between applying and starting basic training. For myself, its been 7 months. The medical is what took the longest.

    Thanks very much @Trooper149. I guess I just have to be patient and focus on getting myself ready

    Indeed, I got PRMC coming up. Can only feel grateful/pumped for it.

    @Trooper149 Commonwealth applications can take considerably longer. Many quotas are over-subscribed.

    Good for @Marvin225 to know. Does it vary with commonwealth location?
