Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. how long does it take to be cleared? please give me some idea i am about to lose all paitence

  2. It depends how old you are and where you or your kin were born.

    Depends on many things, including your nationality, your parent's nationality, your credit history, your police history, whether you told the truth on your form, the level of clearance being applied for, how busy the DVA are at the moment, etc, etc

    From past experience, 6-8 weeks was typical, but could be quicker or not depending on one or more of the factors I identified... - in short, how long is a bit of string?
