Emirati high school graduates used to serve for 16 months in uniform, according to WAM. Those holding a high school diploma or its equivalent and above will serve for 11 months.

The next batch of students who will serve their mandatory term in the Armed Forces will serve for only 11 months

The National service is mandatory for Emirati men aged between 18 and 30 and voluntary for those aged 30 to 40.

Those who are leaving school without a diploma or qualifications must serve for 3 years

As for female recruits, they will serve 11 months.

The announcement follows the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, “pursuant to Resolution No.15 of 2022 issued by the Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces to amend some provisions of Resolution No.6 of 2016 regarding the amendment of the national service period,” WAM stated.

The resolution aims to increase the recruits’ training programmes. They’ve also updated the program to include new topics, intensify practical exercises, enhance the recruits’ confidence and provide them with the skills necessary to perform their duties.
