Brunei imposes travel suspension to and from India

The suspension applies to entry travels of all foreign nationals departing from or through any airport in India. - BB

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN (Borneo Bulletin/ANN): With the consent of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, the Prime Minister’s Office has informed the public on the temporary suspension of approvals on the entry for foreign nationals departing from or through the Republic of India and exit-country approvals to India from yesterday until May 24.

This is following the ongoing situation of Covid-19 in the Republic of India where a new variant or strain of the virus was found to be more contagious and has led to the rapid spread of infection in the republic.

The suspension applies to entry travels of all foreign nationals departing from or through any airport in India (direct flight) including transits through Brunei Darussalam; and exit-country travels from Brunei Darussalam to India for any reason or business matters except for foreign nationals who hold an employment or dependent’s pass which have been revoked/cancelled or the holders of the ‘Special Authorisation Work Pass’ or ‘Professional Visit Visa’ who do not require exit-country approvals from the Prime Minister’s Office.

In addition, the temporary suspension also applies to foreign nationals who have been granted pre-approvals to enter Brunei Darussalam from India via pre-authorised flights, which have therefore been suspended.

The conditions for the consideration of entry and exit travel mentioned are subject to review by the Cross-Border Affairs Steering Committee from time to time.

For information, contact the travel hotline at 120 during working hours.

India recorded the highest mortality and infection rates in the world for the 24-hour period since the outbreak began in 2019. - Borneo Bulletin/Asia News Network
