Resumption of compulsory military service in Morocco

Suspended due to Covid-19, compulsory military service will finally resume next year. Some 20,000 citizens will constitute the next contingent of those subject to the service, a figure up from the 2019 edition.

This recovery aims to help improve the situation of young people by allowing them to serve their country and obtain training that opens up opportunities for professional and social integration, said the Minister Delegate in charge of the administration of national defense, Abdellatif Loudiyi.

To meet the training and accommodation needs of the next contingent, the FAR have set up four new centers: Benslimane, Sidi Yahia du Gharb, Benguerir and Tan-Tan.

To this end, the recruitment of people who will be part of the next conscripts in 2022 is planned to be launched very soon.

As a reminder, military service lasts 12 months, 8 of which are reserved for learning trades and skills to prepare conscripts to integrate professionally after their passage under the flag.
