In response to growing regional threats and enlistment shortages, the Australian Defence Force (ADF) has announced plans to recruit individuals from foreign countries, including the United Kingdom, to bolster its military strength.


Commencing in July, permanent residents of Australia from New Zealand will be eligible to apply, with the program expanding to include recruits from the UK, US, Canada and other countries from next year.


To be eligible, applicants must meet ADF standards, security requirements, have been permanent residents of Australia for over a year, and not have served in a foreign military in the past two years. They must also be eligible for Australian citizenship, which they will be expected to obtain within 90 days of service.


This move marks a significant expansion of the ADF's recruitment pool, addressing a current shortage of approximately 4,400 personnel. The government has emphasized the importance of enhancing the defence workforce to counter regional threats, particularly from China.


While the opposition has expressed some concerns about the plan's potential impact on ADF morale, the move is seen as a necessary step to ensure Australia's national security.
