    Try it. that's the best way to find out. I think you are supposed to be Swiss, but you could always get Swiss citizenship and then go for it. The entrance requirements are stringent, however, so if you aren't prepared to be sort of the equivalent of a Ranger or a Green Beret, don't even bother. These guys are the real deal. Do NOT let the medieval costume fool you.

    Sorry, no. You have to ba Swiss.

    The Swiss Guard celebrated their 500th anniversary of protecting the Pope in 2006.

    With love in Christ.

    Nope requirements are;

    Recruits to the guards must be Catholic, single males with Swiss citizenship who have completed basic training with the Swiss military and can obtain certificates of good conduct.

    Only if you have Swiss Citizenship, own a Swiss Army Knife (34 tool minimum) and are fluent in Romansh.

    Try the French Foreign Legion but you have to be ex-military.

      Is this supposed to make sense, or is it a joke?
