Thereafter, successful applicants will be notified via their personal emails provided during the application from 27 June 2022 to 1 July 2022.
The notification email will be sent from [email protected]. Do take note that emails will only come for this email address. Be sure to check as you do not want to fall prey to an email scam.
NDP 2022 Ticket Collection
For the collection of tickets, successful applicants will have to produce the QR code included in the email as well as original photo identification eg. driver’s license, NRIC, or student pass.
Successful applications can collect their tickets from 8 to 10 July 2022 and 15 to 17 July 2022, from 10:30am – 8:30pm at Central Atrium (Level 2), Marina Square (6 Raffles Blvd, Marina Square, Singapore 039594).
If you are not free, you may forward their notification email to a trusted family member/friend to make the collection on their behalf.
Please note that the QR code within the email is tagged to the personal details of the applicant, and any misuse of the tickets will be traced back to the original applicant. Do also be reminded that the QR code is only valid for a one-time redemption. Hence, successful ticket applicants are discouraged from sharing the notification mail with multiple recipients.

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 12pm on 20 June 2022…)
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…
But this is really for those who simply MUST be there in person to sing along to this year’s theme song, “Stronger Together” performed by former Singapore Idol Hady Mirza and The Island Voices:
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.
NDP tickets are strictly NOT FOR SALE. Please do not buy tickets via those sites. Entry to the venue may be denied to those with purchased tickets.
When And How Do I Collect The NDP 2022 (Funpacks) Packs?
The NDP Packs previously known as the NDP Fun Packs will be distributed to attendees at The Float @ Marina Bay and will be packed full of food, beverages and interactive items.
More information about the NDP packs will be released at a later date.
But for context, here is last year’s NDP pack which was made to be as environmentally friendly as possible:
