MAVNI Step 2 - Meeting your local recruiter
To get started on your career in the U.S. Army, you’ll have to talk to your local recruiter to actually get the process started. Please use this link to contact your local recruiter, go check with them to see if the recruiting office accepts MAVNI applicants. See if they are proficient in the MAVNI processing.
There are many little steps and details entailed within each steps of the enlistment, but here’s the big picture.
Let’s talk about some of the documentations you might want to bring to make your entire process faster & smoother
- Visa document (whatever used to establish your immigration status listed above)
- Valid passport
- Social Security Number Card
- Birth Certificate
- Official High school transcript & diploma
- Official college transcripts
- Photo ID
a. State ID
b. Driver’s License
c. NOT school ID
i. Ex: University ID card
ii. If you don’t have both state ID or Driver’s License, you can use your school ID at MEPS
*When initially meeting your recruiter to get the paperwork started, make sure you don’t leave anything out. Be honest.
After you’ve completed your initial sign-up, you’ll take an unofficial pre-ASVAB pre-test to see what it’s like + to sort of see where you are at if you took the ASVAB. The score you obtain will be rough estimate of AFQT score to determine your immediate level of knowledge. The unofficial pre-ASVAB test is a good indicator of where your AFQT score will be if the real one is taken at that moment.
Regular enlistee require AFQT score of 31 or higher. However, MAVNI require 50 or higher in the AFQT. We’ll talk more about this in the next section.
