Amendments on Conditions to Enter the Country

The Minister of Health also shared on several amendments on the conditions imposed on those allowed to enter Brunei Darussalam such as the RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 required for any individual wishing to enter the country, must be performed not less than 48 hours before arriving in the country. The condition is applicable to every individual whether for Brunei citizens or foreigners.

For those who have completed the COVID-19 vaccination of which their second dose has been obtained more than 14 days from the date of entry into the country, will be allowed to shorten the mandatory isolation period in the isolation hotel for a period of between one to seven days, subject to a risk assessment of the country they departed from. They are required to upload the status and proof of their vaccination in the Arrival Declaration application system for citizens or permanent residents of Brunei Darussalam or Entry Travel Pass for foreign nationals. However, this shortening of the isolation period is subject to several factors such as the type of vaccine, a negative RT-PCR swab test for SARS-CoV-2 performed not more than 48 hours prior to departure and also a second RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 upon arrival in the country. It should be noted that the consideration for admission applications for foreign nationals into this country at this time is only for essential travel which is of important matter. However, for those who do not have a complete vaccination, including those whose second dose is less than 14 days from the date of arrival in the country will be required to undergo mandatory self-isolation in the hotels according to current procedures. All the amendments will take effect on Friday, 15th October 2021.
