U.S. embassies and consulates overseas assist the Selective Service System with its registration program abroad. The Selective Service System online registration site is available at this link.
Almost all male U.S. citizens, and male immigrants living in the U.S., who are 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service. It’s important to know that even though he is registered, a man will not automatically be inducted into the military. In a crisis requiring a draft, men would be called in sequence determined by random lottery number and year of birth. Then, they would be examined for mental, physical and moral fitness by the military before being deferred or exempted from military service or inducted into the Armed Forces. A chart of who must register is also available from the Selective Service System.
