What happens on enlistment day

First day experience

Enlistment day marks the moment where all Singapore citizens and Permanent Resident males embark on their National Service journey. Follow a pre-enlistee through the key events on enlistment day as he enters his training facility and transitions into military life.

What you should wear

You should wear a collared shirt, long trousers and shoes. Singlets, bermuda shorts, shorts, slippers or sandals are not allowed as you will be taking your oath of allegiance and it is a solemn ceremony. The same dress code applies to your parents and friends as well.


If you fall sick on enlistment day

You should consult a doctor immediately and contact us at 6373-3127 (manned only on enlistment day) thereafter. You will need to email your Medical Certificate to MINDEF at contact@ns.sg by 12pm on the same day. You are required to provide the reason for your medical leave and may be required to report to Medical Classification Centre for a medical review.
