So here’s the thing, each person who applies is entitled to only one ballot chance regardless of whether you opt for two (2), four (4) or six (6) tickets.
How Do I Increase My Chances Of Getting NDP Tickets?
Firstly, tickets are not given on a first-come-first-served basis.
You don’t have to submit your application RIGHT NOW (unless you’re reading this at 11pm on 12 June 2023…)
Pictured above: This is metaphorical ah. Applications are submitted online…All valid applications will go through an electronic balloting system, so it’s really heng suay (Hokkien for lucky or unlucky) one.
But there’s one way to increase your chances of getting a ticket.
So here’s the thing, each person who applies is entitled to only one ballot chance regardless of whether you opt for two, four or six tickets.
The only good thing about this is you can always re-apply anytime (within the valid application period) if you suddenly decide that you don’t need six tickets after all and would be happier with just two.
To increase your chances of getting a ticket, all you gotta do is convince your ENTIRE family, plus five uncles and aunts, their kids, and their grandkids, to put their names down for a ticket and get them to agree to give it to you. Provided that they have no desire to attend the parade, of course.
After all, more people applying means more chance of getting it right…
National Day 2023 Theme Song
But this is really for those who simply MUST be there in person to sing along to this year’s theme song, a fun pop-rock ditty called Shine Your Light:
Note that for NDP tickets, the NDP organising committee has warned that:
To prevent the misuse of NDP tickets, it is recommended that you pass the tickets to your trusted family and friends only.
NDP tickets are only allotted based on balloting and are strictly NOT FOR SALE. Any discovered attempts to do so will result in the tickets made void. Actions will be taken against offenders.
