0 4

The Finnish Defence Forces’ Regional Offices will hold the call-ups from August 15 to December 15 , 2023 in accordance with the Act on liability for military service, said an official press release on Tuesday.

This autumn, the call-up events will be attended by altogether 36,900 persons liable for call-ups.

The call-ups will be participated by all males who were born in 2005. Additionally, the call-ups will be attended by persons who have been ordered for re-evaluation, or who have been absent from the call-ups without a legitimate reason.

All persons liable for call-ups must attend the call-ups unless the Regional Office has granted them a permission to be absent.

The purpose of the call-ups is to determine the fitness for service of a person liable for military service, and to take a decision concerning the service. In the call-up event, the persons liable for military service will receive information on their future service timing and service location.

During the call-up event, it is possible to voice wishes concerning the service to the call-up board. However, please keep in mind that the exact service duration and service task will be ordered only at the end of the branch training phase.

This autumn, call-up events will be held in 244 localities in total.

In the autumn of 2024, joint call-up and selection events will be piloted both for the call-ups and for the selections relating to the voluntary military service for women in the regions of Lapland, Uusimaa, and Häme. In the future, the objective is to hold joint events once the call-up reform in-progress gets completed.

In conjunction with this, women applying for the voluntary military service for women in the area of the Regional Offices partaking in the piloting may apply to the contingent of 1/25 at the earliest.

The given brigade-level units will then be determined in accordance with the set quota brigade-level units as assigned to the Regional Offices.
