Type “B” Recruitment Status Certificates are used to proof the recruitment status of the interested person at the time of issuance of the certificate for migration purposes. They are granted to people who have fulfilled their military service duties or to those that have been exempted from them in accordance to Article 23 of the Law, with the exception of Permanent Foreign Residents or those that have been granted a postponement of their military service under sections (h), (i) and (j) of article 24 (1) of the Law.

For those who have not fulfilled their military service duties from the age of sixteen (16) until the age of twenty six (26) an Exit Permit is required in order to leave the country. Those that have fulfilled their military duties can travel with their Army Discharge papers or with their Type “B” Certificate. The temporary Unfit – to - serve Discharge paper cannot be used to leave the country and as a result its holders will need to obtain an exit permit.
Those liable for service who turn sixteen, are given an extended exit permit, which is valid for all travels until they are called to conscript, as long as they do not have any pending military obligations towards the National Guard. In order to obtain an exit permit the petitioner or his legally authorised representative must submit the relevant application in one of the Recruitment Offices or the Citizen Service Centres, along with the travel document (passport or identity card) that he will use to leave the country.
Said permit does not affect the obligation for conscription in the National Guard and does not constitute any postponement of service but it constitutes a temporary accommodation under the provisions of article 70 of the National Guard Laws of 2011-2019.
