Zhejiang, Jiangsu visitors also barred from entering Brunei

With the exception of Brunei citizens and permanent residents, anyone from the Hubei, Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces in the People’s Republic of China will be barred from entry into Brunei Darussalam, the Ministry of Health (MoH) said yesterday. The announcement came after a lockdown order on Zheijiang and Jiangsu on February 9, causing the MoH to amend its previous travel advice in view of the rapidly evolving situation regarding the novel coronavirus outbreak. According to the new restrictions, Brunei citizens and permanent residents should avoid from travelling to the territories under lockdown, as well as non-essential travel to mainland China.
