Hi. That hasnt really answered my question. I was trying to find out if dual citizenship would affect MOD security clearance. The position is logistics/purchasing etc. Basically administrative. Thank You.

In short, dual xitizenship does affect security clearance. Generally, the MOD would ask the question. If there is a threat to national security then the lost would not be offered.Most countries insist on employees of the defence department or security services only holding one nationality.Before you decide to travel ti toe UK or take up the lost, I would strongly suggest that you declare your dual nationality.I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.kind regards
