BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN (Borneo Bulletin/Asia News Network): The United Kingdom (UK) has been taken off from the Travel Green List with Brunei Darussalam for non-essential travel effective immediately.

The Covid-19 Steering Committee made the decision following the rapid spread of the new Covid-19 variant Omicron in the UK, Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office and Minister of Finance and Economy II Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Mohd Amin Liew Abdullah (pic) said at the daily press conference on Wednesday (Dec 22).

On Dec 12, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) announced that from Jan 1, 2022, citizens and residents of Brunei Darussalam and foreign nationals who have completed their Covid-19 vaccinations are permitted to exit the country for non-essential travel via air transportation to countries on the Travel Green List: Australia, China, Singapore and the UK.

Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Mohd Amin Liew said the updated Travel Green List category constitutes a crucial step in ensuring that the welfare, well-being and stability of citizens and residents of the Sultanate are safeguarded by controlling the risk of Covid-19 infections.

Those who have made plans to exit or enter the country for non-essential travel to the UK are advised to put their plans on hold.

The requirements for consideration of exit and entry travel will depend on observations by the committee from time to time. Guidelines on exit and entry travel during the Early Endemic Phase can be found on the PMO website at www.jpm.gov.bn.
