AUSTRIA
COMMUNITY SERVICE
ZIVILDIENST

Every male Austrian citizen who is liable to complete compulsory military service is free (up to two days before receiving official call-up papers) to opt instead for the alternative completion of community service. Community service lasts for 12 months and is essentially performed in the area of social services (such as care of the sick, elderly and disabled and youth services).
