Ladies and Gentlemen, it is once again the time for you to ballot for the National Day Parade Tickets again!!!
You may apply for your tickets from now till 25 May 2014 via SMS, SAM and AXS stations or the NDP website. As usual, you can ballot for 2, 4 or 6 tickets to either the NDP preview (2 Aug) or the actual parade (9 Aug). Those who apply for a lower the number of tickets have a higher chance of successfully obtaining them.
Only Singapore citizens and permanent residents can apply and each NRIC holder is limited to one application regardless of the mode used to apply. All successful applicants in the NDP 2013 ticket e-balloting exercise will not be eligible for the NDP 2014 ticketing e-balloting exercise.
Successful applicants will be notified via SMS between 5 June and 14 June 2014.
Good luck everyone!
Update 20 May 2014: DO NOT APPLY for your NDP tickets via the website. The NDP website is not encrypted. This means your information is submitted in plain text which makes it easy for hackers to steal your personal information. For more info, check out Zit Seng’s Superwall. So I say again, DO NOT apply for tickets via the NDP website. I’ll update this post once I got confirmation that they secured the website with SSL. If you can’t wait, use SMS or SAM/AXS station. Thanks @jennyteo for the heads up.
Update 21 May 2014: The NDP Executive Committee has acknowledged the security flaws and will be improving the site. So endure a bit longer if you want to apply for your NDP tickets via the website.
Update 22 May 2014: OK, the E-Balloting page is now SSL secured. Should be safe to use now.
