Transfer from Army to Navy

Hi everyone I’m requesting a transfer from the Army to Navy. Can anyone let me know of the process? How long roughly it takes? Do I have to do the swim test having passed one with the army? Will I have to do medicals as I have just had one saying I’m fully deployable and medically fit? I’m also looking to join as a aircraft controller if anyone on here knows anyone doing the trade etc send them my way so I can ask a few questions regarding it. I have a hand tattoo on left hand not below the knuckle will this be a issue I am in the process of having it removed but it takes time. Cheers laddies and Gents.

I used to be an AC. However, I wasn’t a direct entry rating. (It used to be branch transfer when recommended and passed for leading hand). Therefore, I’m not totally clued up on new processes.
There are a few threads of this nature knocking about though, if you use the search function, I’m sure you’ll find what you’re after.

So I’ve been hearing around that because I’ve only served 2 years in the army I might have to serve a certain time before i can transfer over to the navy can anyone confirm this??

Try your UPO, as a Navy site I doubt there's anyone on here that can answer an Army query. it would depend on your trade in the army and your Return of Service at a guess.
 
So my oc isn’t willing to sign and pass my transfer docs to the co as I haven’t done my full return of service is there anyway I can get this to happen ? Can I pay and buy my self out ?

Probably, that’s your answer.Suck it up, and crack on with your return of service.
I wouldn’t go too hasty and try and get discharged though, that’ll burn your bridges.
Good luck.

Buying yourself out disappeared when they brought in the ability to put your notice in.
