Welcome to conscript service in the Guard Jaeger Regiment 5 July 2021
Familiarize yourself with the guide that contains useful information for prospective conscripts starting their service in July.
If you arrive from outside of Finland (your permanent address is outside of Finland), remember you need to stay two weeks quarantine (14 days), before you are allowed to arrive at the Military Base (due to the COVID 19 virus). We hope that you arrive Finland early enough, so that the quarantine is done before 5th of July 2021 and you are able to start your service normally on time with your service mates.
If you don’t have a place to stay during quarantine, Guard Jaeger Regiment can provide you accommodation in a hotel. Guard Jaeger Regiment will cover housing costs of the hotel. If you need hotel-housing, please inform us beforehand by email [email protected]
If for some reason (you cannot get flight tickets or passport etc.) you are not able to start your military service as scheduled, please contact immediately Uusimaa Regional Office to get the instructions by email [email protected]
Fill out the pre-service questionnaire that allows you to impact on your future service task. Please note that your replies will not determine the outcome as such, but rather all decisive decisions on service task selection will be made only at the during the branch-training period. Please return the filled-out questionnaire form (picture/scanned) by email [email protected] by 25th June 2021.
