    Entry to Brunei is severely restricted. It is not yet clear which exceptional circumstances, if any, foreign nationals may be permitted to enter Brunei. If the Government of Brunei permits you entry, you will be required to go into quarantine on arrival at a government booked facility (usually a local hotel). On 16 April, the Minister of Health announced that all foreigners will have to pay $1,000 BND for a COVID-19 test upon arrival, and would need to cover the cost of their stay in a quarantine facility (14 days from the date of arrival). Quarantine charges can vary, depending on the quarantine facility you are placed in. On arrival in Brunei, you will be encouraged to download the BruHealth app. Failure to use the app may result in you not being able to access a number of day-to-day facilities.
    Brunei has also introduced an exit travel ban, including for permanent residents, and expatriate workers (green identity card holders), and their dependents. Exceptions will be considered by the Prime Minister’s Office on a case-by-case basis, through email applications to travelapplication@jpm.gov.bn giving 14 days’ notice of the intention to travel, and setting out reasons why they need to leave the country. Full details are available on the Prime Minister’s Office website [http://www.pmo.gov.bn/Theme/Home.aspx].
