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, the temporary suspension on cross-border activities has been extended to December 15, said the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

This applies to entry of foreign nationals via land and sea ports, including transits through Brunei Darussalam, except for entry and transit travels approved by the government.

The PMO said entry and transits through Brunei Darussalam may only be considered for transit vehicles with permits issued by the government and that the travellers have 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 permits issued by the government for import deliveries of essential goods.

The suspension of cross-border activities also applies to entry and exit of commuters via land and sea ports for work.
