General conscription

If you are a male Finnish citizen and live abroad, you are subject to the conscription call-up starting from the beginning of the year in which you turn 18 years. The regional offices of the Defence Forces help conscripts.

A conscript from abroad who is to perform military service should contact the CWT Customer Service Team by email to obtain tickets to travel to Finland. The email must be accompanied by a scanned order to start military service.
