Can I get a Bruneian tourist visa in Singapore, if I am not a resident of the latter?

Brunei does not have a diplomatic mission in my country of residence. However, I will be visiting Singapore just before the planned trip to Brunei so I was thinking about applying for a visa in the consulate of Brunei there. I can't find any information about it though, and they do not respond to my emails. I know that some embassies restrict visa applications only to residents of the country in which the embassy is situated (for example, the US), but I have no idea if that's the case for Brunei as well.

All foreign nationals entering Brunei Darussalam must have visas obtainable from any Brunei Darussalam diplomatic missions abroad

Quoted from Brunei Ministry of foreign affairs and Trade Visa information web page

So, there is no such restriction. Maybe check the link - might be you don't even need a visa, if you don't plan on stayong for long.

  • thanks for the answer. I overlooked that part on the website. Do you know in which case I don't need a visa if I don't plan to stay "for long"? I plan to stay less than 48 hours, but not in transit (just a short visit), and my country of citizenship is not listed on the visa-waiver list on the link you sent.

    @user38110 I meant that in the sense your country might be on the waiver-list. You're welcome.
