Does the US Army accept immigrants? The Selective Service means the military draft. Generally, all male residents between the ages of 18 and 26 must sign up. The U.S. government considers you a “resident” even though you are undocumented, and even though undocumented immigrants cannot join the U.S. military.
Can I get a green card by joining the army? Can you get a Green Card through the military? You can’t get it through the military – you need to get one before you enlist in the U.S. armed forces. However, service members who are not citizens may qualify to apply to become naturalized citizens.
Can a foreigner enter the US Army? Yes. A non-citizen can enlist in the military. However, federal law prohibits non-citizens from becoming commission or warrant officers. In order for a non-citizen to enlist in the military, they must first be a legal immigrant (with a green card), permanently residing in the United States.
Can immigrants get drafted? Almost all men ages 18-25 who are U.S. citizens or are immigrants living in the U.S. are required to register with Selective Service. Citizens must register within 30 days of turning 18.
