star this property answer text <p>The number of regular Armed Forces personnel as at 1 April 2018 who report a country of birth that is a non-UK EU country is 4,660. This represents 3.4% of the regular Armed Forces who have a known country of birth.</p><p>The number of regular Armed Forces personnel as at 1 April 2018 who report a country of birth that is a non-UK Commonwealth country is 8,330. This represents 6.0% of the regular Armed Forces who have a known country of birth. These figures include personnel with a country of birth of Malta and Cyprus, these personnel are also contained in the figures in part (a) of this response (Hence the figures in parts (a), (b) and (c) cannot be added to give the non-UK total). Personnel reporting The Gambia and Zimbabwe as their country of birth are included in these figures.</p><p>The number of regular Armed Forces personnel as at 1 April 2018 who report a country of birth that is a non-UK, EU or Commonwealth country is 2,890. This represents 2.1% of the regular Armed Forces.</p><p>Country of birth has a 94.9% declaration rate on the Armed Forces administration system with 7,450 personnel with an unknown country of birth. Non-UK refers to personnel who do not report a country of birth that is either the United Kingdom, any British Overseas Territory or Crown dependency.</p><p>Although the country of birth may be non UK or Commonwealth, personnel must hold a British or Commonwealth nationality to join the Armed Forces.</p><p>Figures in this response have been rounded to the nearest 10.</p><p>For the Ministry of Defence's (MOD) civil servants, the civilian administration system does not make it mandatory to record their place of birth. Around 25% of MOD civilians have declared their place of birth on the system, which is not a high enough figure to provide a meaningful analysis.</p>
