Regional Military Headquarters - KVV

The Czech acronym is "KVV".

KVV Badge

In accordance with the Czech Law No. 585/2004 Coll. - a defence related law - each Regional Military Headquarters (KVV) is a military administration entity empowered with state administration authority in the sphere of defence of the Czech Republic, within its territorial scope of activities. There are 14 Regional Military Headquarters in the Czech Republic.

The office of KVV ensures the handling of defence-related issues in close coordination with regional and local governments. It is headed by a director -- an officer -- in a rank of Colonel. The KVV is in charge of concluding contracts with applicants for the volunteer Active Reserve force, and for organising its training.

The KVV keeps records on soldiers in reserve and soldiers in Active Reserve, and calls them to exercises or active service.

The compulsory legal duty for the defence of the country applies to all Czech citizens who are between ages of 18 and 60 years. Citizens can voluntarily undergo a basic military training and become soldiers in reserve. Only in case of general mobilisation, the military training would be compulsory for the rest of citizens.


The legal duty is fulfilled through:

  • Voluntary enlistment for the Active Reserve force within the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic;
  • Voluntary enlistment for military training to become a soldier in reserve for use in the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic;
  • Conscription service in the case of a state of emergency or a state of war, declared to authorise emergency military service, or on-call service to complement the standing military force.

A state of emergency can include military threats or civil emergency situations, such as natural, environmental, and industrial disasters.


Conscientious Objection

The Defence Law also provides for instances of conscientious objection to military service.

Personnel who request exemption from service in the armed forces, according to the Law, are obliged to inform the appropriate KVV within 15 days after receiving an impending service notification, or within 15 days after declaration of the state of emergency or the state of war, of their intention not to join the military for emergency service because of their moral or religious beliefs.
