Visa Information

Do I need a UK visa?



Last Updated: 13 June 2000

Visitors to Brunei should note that there are severe penalties for all drug offences including, in some cases, the death penalty.

Entry to Brunei is normally refused to visitors holding passports with less than six months validity.

Holders of British passports do not require an entry visa for visits of less than a month.

Travellers whose journey will involve overflight of Afghanistan should be aware that there are threats from military activity to civil aircraft overflying Afghanistan using routes G202, A454/A466, G668/V668, V838, V848 and V888. Some airlines continue to use these routes. Others including all British carriers, use alternative routes V876 and G500/V500, on which the threat is assessed as minimal. Travellers should check direct either with travel agents or airlines which routes other airlines are using.
