Every 9th of August, Singaporeans celebrate our day of independence, I’ve applied for 6tickets, I know the chances of getting it is low, but hey, big group = more fun!
This year(like any other year), there’s 4 ways to ballot for tickets.
Log on to the official NDP 2011 website at www.ndp.org.sg or visit any AXS and SAM stations. Alternatively, applicants can log on to the NDP website using Internet stations located at CitizenConnect Centres. The locations of SAM and AXS stations, as well as the various CitizenConnect.
Centres, can be found at www.singpost.com.sg, www.axs.com.sg and www.ecitizen.gov.sg respectively.
NDP 2011 Mobile Application (App)
Download the “NDPOnTheGo” Mobile App, available for free from the Apple App Store and Android Market.
Dial 1900-112-4551 to ballot for preview tickets on 30 Jul 2011, or 1900-112-4559 to ballot for actual day tickets on 9 Aug 2011.
Short Message Service (SMS)
Key in “NDP” and send it to 9395-2855 to start the application process.
While there is no limit to the number of applications that each applicant can submit, only his/her latest choice will be entered for the electronic ballot when the application period ends on 29 May 2011. As such, tickets are NOT allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
The balloting results are final and there will be no appeals. As each ticket admits one spectator to the parade, children (inclusive of infants) must hold a valid ticket to be admitted to the parade. Successful applicants will be contacted between 9 and 18 Jun 2011 via the contact numbers provided during their application process. They can collect their tickets from 17 to 26 Jun 2011, between 9am and 9pm daily, at The Float @ Marina Bay (20 Raffles Avenue, (S) 039805).
The NDP and Preview tickets are strictly not for sale. For further enquiries or feedback regarding NDP 2011 ticketing, please call 1800-NDP-2011 (1800-637-2011) or visit the official NDP 2011 website.
Anyways people, let’s be fair, DO NOT SELL THE TICKETS, it’s very annoying when people do that, it pisses me off, these tickets are FREE, DO NOT BUY AND PROFIT PEOPLE WHO FLOUT THE RULES.
I have been trying to get tickets for 10 over years, the last NDP I went was back in 1999.
