Sweden announced in 2017 that it would bring back the draft after it was scrapped seven years earlier, and this year a total of 5,000 Swedes are expected to carry out the basic training.
This week, 95,000 18-year-olds in the country will receive a letter with log-in details to carry out an initial survey, including sections on their physical fitness, ability to work with others and follow instructions, and whether they want to do military service. If this isn't filled out within two weeks, they can risk fines.
And of this number, around 5,000 will be chosen to do basic training for the military services.
