Students studying overseas need COVID insurance?

I’m seeking clarification from the authorities regarding local students going overseas for further studies, and if they need travel medical insurance with COVID-19 coverage.

According to the website, Brunei citizens and permanent residents, who are currently residing in a foreign country for work or studies, are not required to purchase a travel medical insurance before the travel date if they are to return to the foreign country after entering the Sultanate for a short trip.

My question is: Does a local student, who is currently in Brunei and is set to travel overseas for further studies, need to get a travel medical insurance before departing the Sultanate as his/her travel will not be considered a short trip?

I hope the authorities could respond to our query soon, to clear the air regarding the procedures and necessary documents in these pandemic times.
