Hello everyone?,am Alexander from kenya (africa),i have had my part and share of this life here,done my part and really want to move for better,i would love to join the legion with passion,the problem is the visa part,since application of such documents dont come cheap here in Africa plus the perception of where i am in the eyes of europe, and then a refusal would mean another few years of hard labour and struggle to recover from the non refundable fees,what is the nearest easy way of acquiring a visa without a hustle,if anyone can help,i would really be thankful,life here is no bed of roses,and the boats trips i believe are not for me,i just wanna land there legal and join,got nothing to loose but all to gain,,am just alone in the world and hope i can get a military like feeling of family,,be blessed and be focused,,an answer to that will be helpful,
thanks.

Hello Alexander and welcome to the forum. Perhaps you'd like to tell us a bit about yourself. Up to now all we know is that Kenya is in Africao_O which clears up any confusion.;)
I understand that it isn't easy for Africans to get visas etc. but I'm not sure how we can help you. Unless there is someone else who has come from Kenya.

Anyway good luck and if you find any news please do share it with us.

I can only advise you about the Visa process from South Africa, there was a Kenyan on the forum a while back, but cannot think of his name.

H Alexander,

Welcome to the forum. I appreciate that life is not easy for you in Kenya. At least it is not as cruel and unpleasant as the old Belgian Congo in days of yore. (Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness etc.)

Back to modernity seek as much information as you can from the Greens and scan old posts.

It is unfortunate that the forum has a paucity of Greens. I only hang on to offer moral support, write nonsense, enjoy banter, on the off chance some Greens will return or join. I live in hope !

All the very best in you endeavours.

Thank you sir,i have been going through some of the old posts,and am starting to have ideas of how to make a plan,e.g get a visit visa,(shegen) to Germany,then take a two days visit by train to France and straight to the legion gate,anyway its just a thought,otherwise i was looking more forward for someone to invite me for a visit as a friend which can be a bit easy in visa processing,i have worked in south Africa at east rand(springs)as an armed response guard but was staying as a refugee due to tribal war at home,am currently in Botswana,working for some company,but still i feel this is not for me,anyway,thank you for your wisdom,i know with time ill still find a way out,through this forum here,thanks again mate,good times ahead.

Hungry, no need to call me sir. Before getting to France, check up on some of the other posts, like teeth and eyesight. I take it you can do the pull ups and have trained on the Luc Leger. It really is a long way to go, not just distance, to get turned away because of something that could have been avoided.

Mate as long as we stay motivated, then we can do it. I have my PSIRA grades as well.

Commenwealth is a nightmare LP, just using Heathrow as a transit point requires a £100 visa.
