A temporary two-week postponement is in place on granting permission to Brunei-registered parcel runners and foreign nationals from Malaysia, including transit travellers entering the country via land or sea.
This is by the 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 Steering Committee on the Border Crossing Affairs announced several regulation updates for entering and exiting the country via land and sea control posts.
According to Minister of Home Affairs Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Kerna Dato Seri Setia (Dr) Haji Awang Abu Bakar bin Haji Apong at the Ministry of Health press conference yesterday, the updates were made following Malaysia’s implementation of a two-week movement control order (MCO) which commences today, and the announcement of the state of emergency, which took effect yesterday.
