Brunei Pet Passport & Import Regulations
There will be no quarantine imposed on your pet when entering Brunei as long as the following requirements are met. Unless otherwise stated, the regulations below apply to domestic dogs and cats only. Owners of other pets should refer to item 11.
To enter Brunei, your pet does not require an ISO 11784/11785 pet microchip; however, it is recommended for pet identification. Make sure your veterinarian scans your pet's microchip after it is implanted and don't forget to register your contact information in your chip manufacturer's database.
Your dog or cat must have been vaccinated for rabies between 60 days and 12 months of import.
Rabies Titer Test
A rabies titer test should be administered more than 3 months and less than 24 months prior to entry as it will affect the duration of quarantine when entering Brunei (see step #8). If your pet is not currently vaccinated or its previous vaccination has expired, you should wait for 30 days after the date of vaccination before having the titer test administered.
You must file an Import Permit with the Department of Agriculture in advance of importing your cat or dog to Brunei.
Your dog or cat will need a Veterinary Health Certificate for Brunei stating that your country has been free from rabies for the past 6 months. A USDA or CFIA-accredited veterinarian will complete the form for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are traveling from another country, the governmental authority for the import and export of animals should endorse the forms.
Internal and External Parasites
Internal and external parasite treatments are not required to enter Brunei; however they are recommended.
Countries that Brunei considers to be rabies-free
Brunei considers the following countries to be rabies-free: Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore, Sabah, Sarawak and the United Kingdom. Other countries may be considered at the time of application.
There will be no quarantine when entering Brunei if you are entering Brunei from a country considered to be rabies-free (see step #7) and your pet was born in or has resided in that country for a period of not less than 6 months prior to export.
If you are entering Brunei from a rabies-controlled country with a rabies titer test, the quarantine period will be 2 weeks.
If you are entering Brunei from a high-rabies country or from a rabies-controlled country without a rabies titer test, your pet will be quarantined for a period of 6 months.
Entering Brunei by Air
Pets entering Brunei must enter via Brunei International Airport as air cargo. Whenever possible, all transits should be done in rabies-free or rabies-controlled countries.
All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the entry airport. If your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.
Brunei does not publish a list of banned breeds.
Birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits are not subject to requirements of rabies vaccination, but may have to meet other requirements and should have a health certificate to enter Bahrain. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.
If your pet is not a dog, cat or ferret, and especially if it is a turtle or parrot, you should verify that it is not protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). You will need to apply for additional permits if this is the case. Over 180 countries participate and enforce CITES regulations. .
