Young Swiss abroad

The competent Swiss representations urge all young Swiss expatriates aged between 18 and 19 to enrol. They generally do not receive the military service record but an information sheet on their obligations, especially if they decide to take up residence in Switzerland. For as long as they live abroad they are released from their military obligations.


There are special provisions for Swiss nationals living on the other side of the border who work in Switzerland or are undergoing training.
