The import of all goods into Brunei is monitored by the Royal Customs and Excise Department. Importers must register with the port of entry. Determination of duty classification is based on Excise Duty Orders 2012 and 2007. Import permits are required for some products. Licenses for import are available from the relevant government agencies. Non-prohibited goods can be imported under an open general license.

Completed customs declaration forms must be submitted via the Brunei Darussalam National Single Window website (https://bdnsw.mofe.gov.bn/Pages/Home.aspx) with supporting documentation such as invoices, freight and insurance slips, airway bills, and packing lists.

Additional documentation that may be required include certificates of origin and analysis, approval permits, import licenses, and other documentation as deemed necessary by the Customs and Excise Department.
