Read next

Visa restrictions
Citizens of Israel will be denied entry. Those holding other passports having Israel stamps and/or visas will be permitted entry.

Foreign residents of the following countries/territories are not required to get a visa to visit Brunei if they have a valid passport valid for at least 6 months:

Up to 90 days: all European Union member nations (excluding Croatia), United States

Iceland, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, San Marino, Singapore, South Korea, Ukraine, and the United Arab Emirates may stay for up to 30 days.

Cambodia, Canada, China (including Hong Kong SAR and Macao SAR), Japan, Indonesia, Laos, Liechtenstein, Maldives, Peru, Philippines, Switzerland, Thailand, and Vietnam may be visited for up to 14 days.

Citizens of Israel are not permitted to enter Brunei, however other passports with Israeli stamps and visas are accepted.

Citizens of Australia and Kuwait may acquire a 30-day visa on arrival. Citizens of Bahrain, Qatar, and Taiwan may acquire a 14-day visa on arrival. These nationals may get a visa on arrival for $ 20 or a 3-day transit visa for $5. Immigration officers at the Sungai Tujoh crossing, which connects Miri and Kuala Belait, would not accept payment for a visa upon arrival. That is not in Brunei or Singapore dollars since there is no ATM and no checks are accepted.

A proof of return or subsequent travel is needed to invoice your flight to Brunei. If you want to depart by boat, you must first book a low-cost flight from Brunei. Alternatively, you may purchase a costly (but completely refundable) airfare and cancel it later.

It should be noted that Air Asia does not enforce this regulation from Kuala Lumpur; therefore, if you travel from KL, you will most likely not require evidence of return.

Those who need a visa must apply ahead of time at a Brunei embassy, where processing may take up to three days and costs $ 20 for a single entrance visa. For the most up-to-date information, contact the Brunei Immigration Department.

If you require a visa to enter Brunei, apply at a British embassy, commission, or consulate in the nation where you lawfully live if there is no foreign mission in Brunei. The British embassies in Addis Abeba and Belgrade, for example, accept Brunei visa applications (this list is not exhaustive). British diplomatic missions charge £ 50 to handle a Bruneian visa application, with an additional £ 70 if Brunei authorities need the visa application to be sent to them. Brunei officials may also choose to impose a fee if they contact you personally.
