Apply for tickets to NDP 2018, previews

Those keen to be a part of Singapore's birthday celebration can start applying for this year's National Day Parade (NDP) tickets from today.

Held at The Float @ Marina Bay, NDP 2018 will feature the largest military tattoo display to be held at the venue yet and the return of crowd favourites, such as the aerial flypast.

The Ministry of Defence said yesterdaythat Singaporeans and permanent residents can apply for tickets to the two preview shows and the NDP from May 23 to June 3.

Applicants can choose to apply for two, four or six tickets to Preview 1 on July 28, Preview 2 on Aug 4 or the NDP itself on Aug 9. Those applying for fewer tickets will have a higher chance of getting them, Mindef said. Successful applicants will be notified via SMS from June 25 to July 2.

There are three ways to apply for tickets: Internet, SAM/AXS stations and SMS.

Singaporeans and PRs who did not get tickets for last year's NDP will have priority, with tickets to be allocated using an electronic ballot system supported by computer services firm NCS and audited by KPMG Service.

All NDP tickets are strictly not to be sold for any gain, monetary or otherwise.
