Members of the public can make payment for the SARS-CoV-2 test or swab test for entering Brunei Darussalam online via http://www.healthinfo.gov.bn/entry-payment/#user/login.

In the first week of its availability, 47 payments were made.

This was revealed by Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar during a press conference yesterday at the Ministry of Health’s (MoH) Al-‘Afiah Hall.

The MoH reminded the public that those wanting to take the swab test for travel abroad must take it three to five days before flight, subject to terms and conditions of the destination. The result of the test will take time and the ministry seeks the public’s patience.
