Temporary delay for students travelling to UK

Following the announcement by the Ministry of Education (MoE) during a press conference on December 24 regarding the temporary delay of students travelling to the United Kingdom (UK), the Prime Minister’s Office informed that the exit country approval for these students will also be temporarily delayed until January 31, 2021, subject to the Ministry of Health’s risk assessment.

This also includes the prior exit country approvals for students scheduled to travel to the UK via Royal Brunei flight BI 003 on January 2, 2021.

Students with specific learning needs and are not offered online learning options (including examinations) at their educational institutions can appeal to the MoE for special consideration to travel to the UK.
