Temporary suspension on cross-border activities extended

The temporary suspension on cross-border activities has been extended by 16 days, from May 16-31, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) stated in a statement yesterday, 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 April 30.

The temporary suspension applies to entry of foreign nationals via land and sea ports, including transits through the Sultanate, except for entry and transit travels that have been granted approval by the government.

Entry and transits through the country may only be considered for transit vehicles with transit permits issued by the Brunei government, provided that the travellers have attained endorsement from their local authorities for their travels, and will be subject to existing entry conditions and procedures – 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 temporary suspension also applies to entry and exit-country travels of commuters via land and sea ports for the purpose of work.

The conditions for the consideration of entry and exit travel mentioned are subject to review by the COVID-19 Steering Committee.
