On the day you report at the Foreign Legion’s information desk, you should be declared medically fit to take the required physical aptitude tests .
You should be declared physically fit to serve in all places and weather conditions, without restriction.
Your “Body Mass Index” (BMI) should range between 20 and 30 kg/m² (BMI = Weight/Size ²) *
EXAMPLE: BMI of a man with a height of 1.75 m (5ft9) and weight of 72kg (158.7 lbs).
BMI = 72kg/(1.75m*1.75m) = 23.5 kg/m ².
And above all, applicants are required to pass the sports tests !
