By Sadeq DehqanAt present, 90 percent of the problems of Iranian nationals living abroad, who are liable to serve in the military, have been removed.
In an interview with Iran Daily, the head of Police Conscription Organization, Mohammad Javad Kamandzadeh, said these Iranians can visit Iran and leave the country by depositing collateral.
Referring to the problem of Iranian nationals studying abroad who have reached the age to serve the military and who do not have draft exemption, the official said, “Iranian students, who left the country by Sept. 22 of 2006 and who are currently studying in a foreign university recognized by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Research, can travel to Iran twice a year.“
The official said until recently Iranians living abroad, who were liable to serve in the military and who wanted medical exemption, were obliged to personally visit the organization’s medical council.
“This problem was resolved through an approval by the armed forces. In the near future, we will assign trustworthy physicians in foreign countries to carry out specialized medical examinations of Iranians living abroad who file for medical exemption from military service. The files of these people will then be sent to the medical council for assessment and issuance of a verdict. This way the problem of Iranian expats who cannot travel to Iran will be solved,“ he said.
Kamandzadeh recalled that in coordination with the Foreign Ministry, offices of physicians designated by the organization will open in a few European and American countries.
“In our meetings with Foreign Ministry officials, we will select these countries in a way that Iranian nationals, who have reached the age to serve in the military, could easily access the related physicians,“ he said.
He said the main problem pertains to Iranian nationals who have left the country for any reason and who cannot return to Iran.
“This had become a big concern for these people and their family members. Based on the previous law, which still applies, Iranian nationals who are liable to serve in the military and who left the country by March 21, 2004 can become exempt from military service by paying a certain amount of money and come back to the country and leave again. Based on our recent move, Iranian nationals who left the country by March 21, 2004 and who have reached the age to serve in the military can come back to the country by paying money or without paying money,“ he said.
Kamandzadeh said statistics are not available on the number of Iranian expatriates who are liable to serve in the military.
“In 2008-9, about 7,000 Iranian expats who are liable to serve in the military visited the organization or our representation offices in foreign countries to follow up on related affairs,“ he said.
