Temporary suspension on cross-border activities extended

The temporary suspension on cross-border activities has been extended by 16 days, from March 16 to 31, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) announced.

The suspension is 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, and in reference to a media release issued by the PMO on the extension of temporary suspension on cross-border activities dated February 26, 2022.

The suspension applies to the entry of foreign nationals via land and sea ports, including transits through Brunei Darussalam, except for entry and transit travels that have been granted approval by the Brunei Government. Entry and transits through Brunei Darussalam may only be considered for transit vehicles with transit permits issued by the Brunei government, provided the travellers have attained 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 required to attend school; emergency services (such as ambulances, police and military); and vaccinated foreign-registered transport operators with cross-country permits issued by the Brunei government for import deliveries of essential goods. The suspension also applies to entry and exit-country travels of commuters via land and sea ports for the purpose of work.

Conditions for the consideration of entry and exit travel are subject to review by the Steering Committee for COVID-19 from time to time.
