SINGAPORE - Those who have successfully balloted for tickets to the National Day Parade will be able to collect them from this Friday (July 6) onwards.
Ticket collection will be held at the National Gallery Singapore, at the Ngee Ann Kongsi Auditorium Foyer at Basement 1 of the City Hall Wing, on July 6 to 8 and July 13 to 15, from 10am to 7pm.
Successful applicants would have been notified from June 25 to July 2 through SMS or phone call via the contact number they provided in their ballot application, said the Ministry of Defence on Tuesday (July 3).
To collect the parade tickets, applicants will need to bring their original NRIC, driver's licence or birth certificate for verification purposes. Tickets will not be issued without proof of identity, the ministry added.
If a representative is collecting the tickets on the applicants' behalf, they are required to bring along their original NRIC or any other form of photo identification; a photocopy of the front and back of the applicant's NRIC, driver's licence or birth certificate; and a signed letter of authorisation, which can be downloaded from the official NDP website's ticketing page at https://ticketing.ndp.org.sg.
Along with the tickets, successful applicants will also receive a ticket advisory containing information such as the Do's and Don'ts of attending the parade, road closure details, and directions to the parade venue at the The Float @ Marina Bay via public transport.
The advisory can also be downloaded from the official website's ticketing page.
Tickets that are not collected after July 15, 7pm, will be forfeited. No appeals will be entertained, said the Ministry of Defence.
It added that the tickets are strictly not to be sold for any gain, monetary or otherwise.
Those present to collect the tickets, including the successful applicant's friends and family, will be given admission stickers to visit the galleries at the museum if they wish to do so. The sticker does not provide access to the special exhibition.
