NS Liability in practice (older, naturalised)

Postby chocolatehead » Fri, 29 Mar 2019 12:48 am

Please help!

For a male second-time PR or a new citizen, that person has NS liability.

If he’s already over 40 (say 42), what does this liability mean in practice?

- will he have to serve full-time NS for a period of 2 years like the young ones?

- the annually recurring operationally ready NS has finished by that age, except for officers, which is presumably not a grade that a new serviceman would have, so I assume they would not need to do this at all. Is that correct?

Thank you much for any insights...
