SINGAPORE - Those keen to be a part of Singapore's grandest birthday celebration can start applying for this year's National Day Parade (NDP) tickets from Wednesday (May 23).

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 (Mindef) said in a statement on Tuesday that Singaporeans and permanent residents can apply for tickets to the two preview shows and 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 NDP on Aug 9.

Those who apply for a lower number of tickets will have a higher chance of obtaining them, Mindef said.

Successful applicants will be notified via SMS from June 25 to July 2 through the contact number provided in their application.

They can then collect their tickets from July 6 to 8, and from July 13 to 15, between 10am and 7pm at the National Gallery.

 

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

Each person can submit only one application regardless of the mode used.

And if multiple applications are made, only the latest one will be entered for e-balloting when the application period ends on June 4. Other earlier applications will be voided.

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 NCS and audited by KPMG Service.

Tickets are not allocated on a first come, first served basis. All tickets for the NDP shows are strictly not to be sold for any gain, monetary or otherwise.
