The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade is not issuing a specific travel advisory for Brunei Darussalam at this time.
New Zealanders in Brunei Darussalam are strongly advised to familiarise themselves with and observe local law and customs, including shariah/syariah/sharia law. A non-exhaustive list of illegal activities under Syariah law includes blasphemy, sodomy, and adultery. Syariah law applies to Muslims, non-Muslims, and foreigners, and penalties can be very severe (including physical punishment and the death penalty).
Further information about the Syariah Penal Code can be found on Brunei Darussalam’s Attorney General’s Chambers website.
New Zealanders travelling or living in Brunei Darussalam should have a comprehensive travel insurance policy in place that includes provision for medical evacuation by air.
