Selective Service Registration

U.S. embassies and consulates abroad assist the Selective Service System with its registration program abroad.  Overseas registrants are encouraged to register with the Selective Service website On-Line Registration.  Where on-line registration is not available, the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate can be of assistance.  Current brochures and guidance are also available on the Selective Service website.

All male Americans must register with the Selective Service System (military draft) at age 18, even though no one has been drafted since 1973. We can help you register. If you don’t register, you are breaking the law and, among other things, become ineligible for government student loans or for employment with the U.S. government. Service in the Danish armed forces does not relieve you of the obligation to register for the draft; dual nationals must register with both countries.
