How binding is online application.

Hi all

Filled out my application online to join as a Warfare Specialist and was just wondering how binding it was in regards to my referee, i live in France and don't really know anyone that speaks good English, that I've known
for more then 3 years, i work for my dads company so i cant use my employer as a referee.
So on my application i put my electrical teacher that i had for 3 years but on second thoughts i don't think he will be able to answer any questions in English.

I only thought of it after i sent my application but can i use my dads friend as a reference? he's know me for years and hes ex Royal-navy Weapons engineer.

Firstly, if the reference is not suitable, we'll ask you for another. Either way, it needs to be in English or a translated version needs to be made available.

I'm not sure if you've seen my other post Dan....but as I said on it my son got references in French and just had to translate each one and attach the translation to the original.

Hi Ninja, do you know if there will be any issues on account of me not having a NHS card or English GP.

Your NHS Number should be in your Red Book (ask your parents).

You will need your parents to also dig out your Child Benefit Number in order to obtain an NI Number. You will have to phone DWP and explain your circumstances....they aren't allowed to issue an NI Number unless you are living in the UK and can provide very specific information. I phoned on my son's behalf a few times ...on the third occasion I actually got someone helpful!

Did your son apply from France or was he already in the UK ?
I think i might just have to save some money and rent a apartment in the UK while i do all the tests and medical.

He applied whilst still living in France. His AFCO was brilliant and arranged for him to do as much as possible on each visit to save on travel and accomodation costs.

Did he first apply online or in person, a friend of mine is going to England next week i will probably tag along and go down a AFCO.

He applied online...initially he was in contact with the Overseas Desk in London but then had his application sent on to Portsmouth AFCO....they were fantastic.
