Notifying the MINDEF Notification Centre (MNC)
You are required to notify MINDEF of your overseas trip if you are travelling for more than 14 days but less than 6 months. You can do so by notifying MNC.
As an NSman, it is your duty to ensure that you fulfil your NS duties. Informing MNC of your intention to travel within the duration of your ORNS activities, like being placed on Manning, participating in In-Camp Training (ICT), or passing your IPPT, does not exempt you from participating in them.
Failure to comply
Under the Enlistment Regulations, you are required to notify MNC of your overseas travel. If you fail to do so, you will receive a warning notice for your first offence. Repeat offenders may be served composition fines. Recalcitrant offenders may be prosecuted in court and are liable upon conviction to a fine not exceeding $2,000.
