The first step in the recruitment process is the Online Registration, where interested individuals looking to join the British Army and Singapore Police Force must register their names online. This phase is followed by Phase 1 (Registration), a ten-week program held at British Gurkhas Pokhara and British Gurkhas Dharan. Successful candidates move on to Phase 2 (Initial Selection), a six-week phase also held at British Gurkhas Pokhara.

Combining both BA & GCSPF Phase 2 (Initial Selection), this phase scores and places individuals in an Order of Merit (OOM). The top candidates proceed to Phase 3 (Final Selection), a five-week program acting as the ultimate filter to identify those suitable for service in the GCSPF and BA.
