recruiting offices only for final roll-call purposes and on deployment
dates. University students will no longer have to send their student
status certificates to the recruiting offices to defer their military

the electronic environment. This facility will enable seasonal workers
such as farmers, people working in the tourism sector, etc. to join the
army in any call period they want. Citizens living abroad will be able
to submit their applications for deferment of their military services,
or military service in foreign exchange procedures on the electronic
environment using the portal of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Turkish
citizens living abroad will also be able to submit any other personal
applications by e-mail on the Internet, and the results of their
applications will be delivered to them by e-mail.

first time on the systems supplied within the scope of the project.
