⚠️ Travel advice

Exercise normal safety precautions

From 3 April 2019 the full sharia penal code (law) takes effect in Brunei. It applies to Muslims, non-Muslims and foreigners even when on Brunei registered aircraft and vessels. Under this code some offences can attract physical punishment while others attract executions. Offences that attract the death penalty include blasphemy, sodomy, adultery, rape and murder (See Laws). We haven’t changed our level of advice - ‘Exercise normal safety precautions’ in Brunei Darussalam.
