How to Apply and Eligibility
Applications can be submitted through this online form on the official NDP website from 12 p.m. on Monday (June 6). Applications will close at noon on June 20.
All Singapore citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply for the tickets.
Audience members can request two, four or six tickets to one of three shows taking place:
- NDP Preview 1: July 23
- NDP Preview 2: July 30
- NDP 2022: August 9
Tickets are allocated via an electronic voting system, not on a first-come, first-served basis, CNA reported.
Each nominee is entitled to one chance to vote and duplicate nominations will be disqualified.
All attendees, regardless of age, must have a valid ticket to access the show. This includes infants carried in the arms of adults.
NDP 2022 will have Differentiated Immunization Safe Management Measures (VDS).
All spectators must be either fully vaccinated, certified medically ineligible for all vaccines under the National Immunization Program, or 12 years of age or younger.
How to know if you have been selected to receive tickets
Between June 27 and July 1, successful applicants will be notified of the number of tickets they successfully voted for. Only successful candidates will be notified.
A notification email will be sent from [email protected] to the personal e-mails provided during the application.
Recipients of any notification about NDP 2022 should beware of emails sent from other addresses as they may be scams or phishing attempts.
The NDP committee advises people to apply for tickets using their personal emails, as corporate emails with security features may reject email notification.
Tickets must be picked up between 10:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. July 8-10 or July 15-17 at the Central Atrium (Level 2) at Marina Square (6 Raffles Boulevard).
If successful applicants are unable to collect their tickets themselves during the stipulated times, they can forward their notification email to a family member or trusted friend to collect the tickets on their behalf.
Successful applicants are discouraged from sharing the notification email with multiple recipients, as the QR code in the email is only valid for a one-time exchange.
Furthermore, the QR code is associated with the applicant’s personal data and any misuse of the tickets will be traced back to the original applicant.
NDP tickets are strictly not for sale, the committee noted. Any attempt to sell voted tickets will result in the cancellation of the tickets and action will be taken against the offenders.
