Please, I just want to know when the Army Mavni Program is closing in 2016?

Mavni Closing Date

Update: As we predicted the MAVNI program is now closed.

According to official sources, the 2016 MAVNI program will be ending soon. As of  3 June 2016, there are approximately 600 slots left for the program.

We are currently in the 9th month of the fiscal year, it’s safe to assume that all slots will end by mid-July. I’ve estimated that the United States Army Recruiting Command (USAREC), enlists approximately 500 MAVNI applicants per month.

Now USAREC is trying to determine the best course of action, that will allow the last vacancies to be filled, while simultaneously meeting the Regular Army’s accession mission.

Courses Of Action

The following courses of action are under consideration:

  1. Continue filling the last 600 slots on a first come first-serve basis.
  2. Assign a limited number of allocations to each Brigade (BDE), without restricting components (Active Army vs. Army Reserve).
  3. Assign a limited number of allocation to each BDE, restricted by component (500 RA and 100 AR).
  4. Continue filling the last 600 slots on a first come first-serve basis by component (500 RA and 100 AR).

Regardless of what decision USAREC makes, it’s clear that the MAVNI program is coming to a close. Secondly, it’s important that current applicants strongly consider the opportunity to join the Active Army, considering the possible limitations on Reserve enlistments.

There are no updates on the 2017 MAVNI program…

As of April 24th, 2016, there isn’t an established date for the close of the program. I would recommend that you determine your qualifications for the Army and then proceed to contact a recruiter to discuss the specifics of your situation.

The MAVNI program has been around for several years now and it has become an instrumental program for the recruiting force. In today’s recruiting environment, if would be extremely difficult for us to achieve our mission without the willing volunteers that constantly apply for the MAVNI Program.

In April of 2015, the Secretary of Defense authorized the United States Army Recruiting Command (USAREC) to recruit certain legal aliens whose skills are considered to be vital to the national interest. Those holding critical skills and those proficient in languages associated with certain cultural backgrounds are eligible to enlist.
Currently, we are still under a limited pilot program that allows the Army to enlist up to 5,200 people. The pilot will continue through September 30, 2016, so longs as there are still allocations available.
