Bruneian Passports are issued to citizens of Brunei for the purpose of international travel.
The Bruneian Passport is valid for a period of 5 years. To travel overseas, a passport must be valid for at least six months into the future.
Since 2008, all Brunei passports contain biometric features. The biometric passport contains a chip which stores facial and fingerprint image.
As of 10 October 2018, Bruneian citizens had visa-free or visa on arrival access to 165 countries and territories, ranking the Bruneian passport 20th in the world in terms of travel freedom according to the Henley Passport Index. Additionally, Arton Capital's Passport index ranked the Bruneian passport 16th in the world in terms of travel freedom, with a visa-free score of 143 (tied with the Barbados passport), as of 10 October 2018. 
As of October 2018, the passports of Brunei, Japan, Singapore and San Marino are the only ones to allow either visa-free entry or electronic travel authorisation to the world's four largest economies, namely China, India, the European Union and the United States. The Bruneian passport is also the only one in the world that allows visa-free access to China, Russia, the Schengen Area, United Kingdom and the United States, which are the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council. Brunei is also the only Muslim-majority country in the world whose citizens are allowed to enter the United States without a pre-arranged travel visa.
