    Anyone been to Brunei since the start of 2013? Had heard a rumor that as of Jan.1, they are no longer allowing people to bring alcohol across the border. Use to be a 12 pack and 2 bottles of hard/wine per person if I remember.

    Interesting to see if they have changed this, might hurt what little tourism they had.

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    do what the brunei moslem men do - slip across to sarawak; have a few drinks and a filipina for good measure.

    Intriguing to see whenever they possess altered that, might damage what exactly very little travel they'd.

    hi
    Travellers by air are advised to make their purchases before departure, as duty-free alcohol is not available at the airport in Brunei .
    On arrival into Brunei, you must declare any alcohol by simply filling in the yellow import forms available at the airport after you exit immigration and before customs checks. You should be able to show the merchandise too. If you arrive by car, simply request for these forms from the custom officers, fill it in and hand back to the officers for acknowledgement. You'll be given an official stamp/ signature.
