To join the Naval Service you will need to be a national of Britain, Ireland or the Commonwealth. If you have dual nationality you can still join, but some roles have stricter requirements than others for security reasons.
If you're a British national living abroad you can still apply and if you don't meet the residency criteria, don't worry, you might still have the chance to join the Naval Service on a short term security clearance until you reach the minimum period of residency.
If you have dual nationality or you are a sole citizen of Bermuda, Botswana, Cyprus (Republic and Sovereign Base Unit), Malaysia, Mozambique or Singapore you may have to provide written evidence that you're not required for national service either now or in the future.
If you're a Commonwealth citizen and want to join the Naval Service as a regular you must have resided in the UK continuously for the previous 5 years, with no single period of absence in excess of 180 days at the point of your application. This residency requirement does not apply to citizens of the Republic of Ireland, Malta and the Republic of Cyprus.
If you wish to join the Maritime Reserves you will need to provide evidence that you've been granted Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) in the UK. To do this you will need to be in possession of an appropriate Residency Permit or equivalent document. ILR is sometimes referred to as Settlement.
