Bruneian passports are issued to citizens of Brunei for the purpose of international travel.
Brunei is the only country whose citizens may travel without a visa to China, Russia, the Schengen Area, United Kingdom and the United States, which are the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council.
The Bruneian Passport is valid for a period of 5 years. To travel overseas, a passport must be valid for at least six months.
Since 2008, all Brunei passports contain biometric features. The biometric passport contains a chip which stores facial and fingerprint image.
In 2018, Bruneian citizens had visa-free or visa on arrival access to 153 countries and territories, ranking the Bruneian passport 22nd in terms of travel freedom according to the Henley Passport Index.
