Military Service for Romanian Citizens

Art 17, Chapter 1 of the Romanian Constitution states that: "Romanian citizens living abroad benefits from the Protection of the Romanian State and must fulfil their duties except for those that are not compatible with their absence from the country." Obviously the military service for Romanian citizens living abroad is such a case of exception:-).

For practical reasons I doubt a Romanian citizen residing abroad can be called for military service in Romania:
  1. It has to be registered with a recruitment office. As far as I know there is none abroad and all information procedures are related only to Romanian-based institutions (e.g. local authorities/commercial agents must present lists with residents/employees of military age to the military institutions)
  2. It has to get by mail the incorporation order based on recruitment offices' records: no incorporation order, no military service
  3. Travel expenses are too high

Romanian citizens can opt for alternative utilitary service (e.g. working in a hospital, for environmental organizations etc. ).

Be sure to read about what has happened so far. You can find everything in the quick summary of dates.
