Phasing Into MR
You will be deemed to have completed your ORNS and be phased into MR when you have fulfilled at least 7 High Key (HK) In-Camp Training (ICT) and 10 active ORNS years.
For Key Appointment holders, you have to fulfil at least 8 HK ICT and 13 active ORNS years.
Upon phasing into MR, you will not have to:
- Take your IPPT
- Be called up for ORNS activities
- Notify MINDEF Notification Centre (MNC) for overseas travel
However, you will still need to apply for an Exit Permit if you are travelling overseas for 6 months or longer. You should also maintain your personal equipment as you may still be activated for operational service up to your statutory age – 50 and 40 years old for Officers and WOSEs respectively.
