  4. Local Government Identification Letter: Candidates are usually required to present a letter of identification from their local government area or council. This serves to confirm your residency and community ties.
  5. Passport Photographs: Recent passport-sized photographs are often required for identification purposes. These photographs should meet the specifications outlined by the recruiting authorities, such as background color and size.
  6. Valid Means of Identification: A recognized means of identification, such as a national identity card, voter’s card, or international passport, is necessary to confirm your identity and citizenship.
  7. Medical Fitness Certificate: Candidates may need to undergo a medical examination and provide a certificate from a recognized medical practitioner affirming their physical and mental fitness for military service.
  8. Character Reference Letters: Letters of recommendation or character references from reputable individuals, such as employers, community leaders, or religious leaders, may be requested to attest to your character and suitability for military service.
