I AM a Permanent Resident born and raised in Brunei. I am married to a Brunei citizen.
After five years of marriage, I applied for my citizenship following my husband’s citizenship.
The lady who interviewed me informed us to wait for the official letter for my citizenship which might take them few months to one year’s time to process.
We waited patiently, but to our disappointment, there has been no update from the department.
We went to the department a few times in different months to check the status but all the time the same answer was given by the lady at the counter … ‘Belum lagi’.
What does that mean? The relevant department hasn’t processed our documents yet? No one knows where our application is kept? Or too many applicants but only one handler?
It’s going to be two years.
I hope the department knows what they are doing.
