Update 19 August 2021: The National Day Istana Open House will be held on Saturday, 28 Aug 2021. Only those already issued tickets will be admitted.

Update on 21 July 2021: The Istana open house event on 1 August 2021 will be postponed to a later date, after the announcement that Singapore will return to Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) on 22 July 2021 Thursday.

However, the National Day Parade will continue as planned for now, but the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) is reviewing the scale of the event and other measures.

The Istana is reopening its grounds to the public on Sunday, 1 Aug 2021, in celebration of National Day.

The Istana will be inviting the ticket holders of the cancelled Istana Open House IOH on 13 May 2021 back for the upcoming National Day Istana Open House IOH on 1 Aug 2021. These ticket holders will be receiving more details through their registered emails.
