The public is now allowed to send off passengers leaving the Brunei International Airport (BIA) following the 75 per cent hall capacity or a maximum of 300 persons at a time.

The Department of Civil Aviation, Ministry of Transport and Infocommunications yesterday announced the latest COVID-19 measures which have been eased.

However, friends and relatives are still not allowed to welcome passengers on arrival as incoming travellers have to undergo mandatory self-isolation at designated hotels.

The public sending off friends or family is reminded to follow the standard operating procedures (SOPs) and guidelines such as scanning the BruHealth QR Code.

Individuals who have not completed the vaccination doses are allowed to enter the airport building, but are required to show proof of a negative ART certificate issued by a certified ART Centre, which is valid for two days.

Passengers are advised to ensure they carry valid travel documents to avoid complications.
Restaurants, cafes and shops at the terminal are allowed to accommodate diners within a 75 per cent capacity according to their spaces.

The Civil Aviation Department also sought the public’s patience in their efforts to repair the air-conditioning system at the arrival and departure halls.
