I think this is terrible. If Kiwis want to fight and die for Australia in the ANZAC spirit they should be allowed to. Especially when the Australian Army is recruiting solidiers from South Africa and the USA. Its just ridiculous, who is the clown making these decisions.

We don't need Kiwis in the Australian army. We already have plenty of redneck semieducated
nong - nongs of our own to fill the ranks.

You are a nutter. 78% of Kiwis in OZ are employed compared with 60% of aussies.

Its good.
NZ can go join its own army.
Australia is sick of NZ leeching off us all the time.
And once an kiwi joined the Australian army all he would do is go on about how the NZ army is better.
Its time for Australia to end the free ride it gives NZ and re-evaluates its position with NZ.
We don't get anything from NZ, but they certainly get a lot from Australia.
Immigration from NZ just adds to the crime and unemployment rates. We would be far better off without anything to do with NZ and their petty, jealous, free loading, criminal population
NZ leaching off Australia?? Kiwis pay billions in tax in Australia every year but are not eligible for any benefits, if you had any understanding of basic economics you would see that this is a great money making deal for the Australian Govt. please get an education before you comment on the internet.

The wrong people are in charge of our armed forces and our governmenet and it shows, it showss in the wrong decisions, and the things that are not done, our gov has made us the weakest armed force in the region because it wont even spend 2 % gdp or buy russian and europoean gear, but just keeps buying american.

No one is able to join the australian army unless they are australian citizens, kiwi's are good people but they are not australian citizens until they become one, I suspect it's the same in new zealand with their army.
Didn't I read somewhere that this kiwi that got knocked back is 53 years old,[ I may be wrong ].

I'm tired of Kiwis and their attitude, I don't know why we need them here. We need to bring in more educated and better looking migrants, New Zealand has neither.

I am from nz an all I've wanted to do is join the army ever since i did scouts as a child an a country that I've growen up in an worked hard in would deprive me of my dream over politics?? This is insanity! My grandfather fought for them an died for them he died protecting an Australian soldier, they where all mates back then an now its the voice from the government stoping people from protecting the anzac traditions we might as well abolish the anzac treaty seeing as its not being committed to :(

LOL As if you can talk!!! It is S-I-X not SEEX. Your pronunciation isn't any better mate you fellas sound like drowned rats.

But on a serious note. Opinions are like *&%holes.... Everyone has one, so here is mine. I am a New Zealander and I have lived here for ten years. I pay taxes, I own a home, I work in the construction industry and yes, I can say that I have helped build this country. I want to join the Australian defense force and for me, its not about an easy ticket to Australian citizenship as some closed minded people may think. I don't need the citizenship to do my part as I've already been doing it ie the roads we drive on, the footpaths we walk on and the parks our children play in. All I want is the opportunity to serve and protect the country that has given me a home. I am proud to be a KIWI living in Australia. I don't believe in free rides but I do believe in equal opportunity. Keep the citizenship but allow me the right to fight for and protect something that I love as much as any Australian.

yeah he is 53, however they have lifted the age restriction due to discrimination issues. Now, as long as you physically & mentally fit and are below the retirement age of 65 at time of enlistment and release of your desired roll, you are eligible to join.

Yes lets have the ADF bend its rules just for you. WTF? become a citizen & serve or else shut up & realise your choice, like all choices, have down sides. Everyone has become a whinging s0ftc0ck when they don't get what they want. How can you be trusted to defend Australia when you won't pledge allegiance to her?

Not the case mate. I am willing to pledge my allegiance with my LIFE. If I am required to apply for Citizenship to serve then I will. My argument is for People who think all I want is a free ride to gain citizenship!!

I'm a Kiwi!! I want to join the defense force and I cant. I've got one thing to say.... At least I'm willing to get off my ARSE AND RISK MY LIFE to protect these boarders in which we live and love. The Australian defense force does NOT currently have enough soldiers to protect its boarders, That makes alot of opinionated, SELFISH Aussies out there ay! What affects Australia... Also affects New Zealand!

NZ has an army join it.
All you will do in the Australian army is whinge about how the NZ army is much better.
People are f*cking sick of listening to you retards, I don't know why you have to come here.

"I'm proud to be from New Zealand" ... well stay there. We don't need you freeloaders here.
Its about time the boarders were sealed and you freakin wierdos were kicked out.
