Compulsory Military Service in Serbia was abolished on 15 December 2010. Serbian nationals living abroad however are still required to register into military records kept by diplomatic and consular missions when they turn 18 years of age, and are listed in the reserve forces. Registering into military records kept by the consular mission means that the Serbian national has regulated his military service.
As of 1 January 2011, military service in the Serbian Armed Forces is done on a voluntary basis. An interested Serbian national residing abroad may submit an application for voluntary military service under arms at the nearest diplomatic consular mission of the Republic of Serbia.
