    They sent me friendly and gentle reminder... I received a pouch from them, giving me the number and internet address to notify, nothing specific like when and where I travelled.

    Kena warn before they call me! so from then on always notify on line when scheldue is confirm or when no internet access call 1800-3676767!

    But call on the phone sometimes is very slow as it is automated, so i always go talk to the operator much faster!

    That is a little unfair.
    If that is the case, then there must be some flexibility on the part of Mindef, otherwise everyone will notify their trips with dates earlier than the actual departure and later than the actual return. And that will certainly defeat the main purpose of this exercise.

    for me, whatever rules or regulations they have, i just follow, finish my service and get it done with... no point arguing with them... remember they say there is no such thing as "white horse" , when i got my hands burn doing push ups on the hot tar road surface, i already forget about what is care for soldiers...

    i can't wait to throw my number 4 away for good...

    goto the website www.ns.sg to notify. If you never get warning/caught, u are lucky but when it happens and they traced back, u may be in deep s**t

    Even for a four day trip I notify through this. I have never encountered inability to notify. Maybe you can try this website again?

    Seriously I dun noe y is this notification is so important! passport verification not enough?

    so what is u notify and u are away and something really happen? are they going to call u back from where ever u are to fight a war?

    if they going to call u back, how they contact u if u are somewhere where is non contactable? like if u are climbing mt everest? (I dun think u have connection at the peak or bother to ans a call if u are at the mid of the mountain)

    they going fine u for that?

    i dont see a point if the mindef want to track the quantity of its manpower but only see a point that the state is using such method to absorb money from its citizens only. As you guy mention why a passport not enough to tracks the manpower in the country???

    wait until i get another evidence i will stomp such notifying system online !!!! damn it.....

    You've a valid point there. I believe a passport can be used to track us citizens going in and out.

    maybe they want to know your expected date of return so they can...

    errr...

    plan?

    seriously they should have big signs at airport, woodlands, tuas, jetties, etc to remind us NSmen to notify before exiting the country. better still, have the customs officer ask "sir, have you contacted MINDEF notification hotline regarding your overseas notification?" when they are scanning your passport.

    anyway, paste a post-it note on your passport to remind yourself to notify MINDEF. hopefully next time don't tio.

    I also got a warning letter recently.

    Actually the fine of $100 is nothing. It's just that these sort of little thing, especially retarded things, pisses off people bit by bit.

    They take $100 from me, no problem. I'll spend $1000 in some other country instead of in Singapore.
