But despite the latest announcement, the prohibition for Brunei citizens and residents to leave the country is still being maintained, as advised by the Ministry of Health (MoH). Those who intend to leave and enter Brunei are still required to obtain clearance from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

“By command of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu`izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar `Ali Saifuddien Sa`adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, the MoFE hereby announces that His Majesty has consented to the implementation of the Exit and Entry Charges Order, 2020 which will be enforced on August 1, 2020,” a statement from the ministry said.
