The new date has yet to be announced.
The Istana Open House originally scheduled for Sunday, Aug 1, will be postponed to a later date. This announcement was made on Wednesday (Jul 21) in view of Singapore’s COVID-19 situation, as we head back into Phase 2 (Heightened Alert).
The August open house was meant to celebrate National Day. It would have also allowed ticket holders from the cancelled May Istana Open House to enter.
Earlier this year, the Istana Open House was scheduled for Thursday (May 13), to celebrate Labour Day and Hari Raya Puasa. However, due to Singapore’s worsening COVID-19 situation at the time, the May open house was cancelled.
The new date for the Istana Open House has yet to be confirmed.
“We apologise for any inconveniences caused,” said the President’s Office in a press release.
The Istana is usually open to the public on five days each year to celebrate Singapore’s holidays. But due to COVID-19, the Istana grounds have been closed to the public since February 2020.
