With the consent 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, and in reference to a media release issued by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) on the extension of temporary suspension on cross-border activities dated May 14, the PMO yesterday announced that the temporary suspension on cross-border activities has been extended by 15 days, from June 1 to June 15.

The suspension applies to the entry of foreign nationals via land and sea ports, including transits through Brunei Darussalam, except for entry and transit travels that have been granted approval by the Government of Brunei Darussalam.

Entry and transits through Brunei Darussalam may only be considered for transit vehicles with transit permits that are issued by the government, provided that the travellers have attained endorsement from their local authorities for their travels, and will be subject to existing entry conditions and procedures for the following purposes: official government travel; students who are required to attend school; emergency services (such as ambulances, police and military) and vaccinated foreign-registered transport operators with cross-country permits issued by the government for import deliveries of essential goods.

The suspension also applies to the entry and exit-country travels of commuters via land and sea ports for the purpose of work, it said.

The conditions for the consideration of entry and exit travel mentioned above are subject to periodic review by the COVID-19 Steering Committee.
