DOCUMENTS

BIRTH AND DEATH CERTIFICATES 

Available.  Birth and death certificates may be obtained under the Registration of Birth and Deaths Enactment (Chapter 79) of 1923 and the Births and Deaths (Registration) Rules, 1957.  Birth and Death Certificates (certified extracts from a Register of Births and Deaths) are available by applying to the Registrar of Births and Deaths (State Medical Officer, Brunei), Bandar Seri Begawan, or to the Superintendent of Births and Deaths for the registration area in which the birth or death was registered.  Records are available from 1948 and in the case of British subjects from 1926. 

ADOPTION CERTIFICATE

Available.  A certified copy of an entry in a register of adoptions may be obtained under the Registration of Adoptions Enactment (No. 10) of 1961 and the Registration of Adoptions Rules (No. 546) of l961 on application to the Registrar of Adoptions (State Medical Officer), Bandar Seri Begawan.  Records are available from l961.

POLICE RECORD

Police certificates can be obtained in Brunei within approximately two weeks.  When requesting a police clearance certificate, an applicant must submit the following:

Photocopy of his/her current passport. Photocopy of his/her Brunei identity card, if available. Evidence of the duration of the applicant's residency in Brunei.  Fee of fifty Brunei dollars.

The above items should be sent to:

The Commissioner

Royal Brunei Police Force

Gadong Headquarters

Bandar Seri Begawan

Attn:  Awg Mohammad Abdullah - Translator

If the applicant lives outside of Brunei, a request for a police certificate, along with the required passport and identity card photocopies, may be sent to the Embassy by courier service.

Brunei criminal records are permanently stored in the police computer archives.  The records are indexed by family name and identity card numbers.

PRISON RECORD

Unavailable to private individuals.  If a police check develops evidence of the existence of a prison record, or if an applicant volunteers such information, then the Embassy can obtain relevant particulars by official application to the Commissioner of Prisons.  The name of the applicant, prison number, and name of the prison where sentence was served are necessary information.

MILITARY RECORD

Brunei has had its own Armed Forces (for which only Brunei citizens of the Malay race are eligible) since 1962.  Military records are "privileged documents" which, it is believed, cannot be obtained by residents or former residents of Brunei on personal application.  Such information would not, as a matter of routine, be supplied to the Embassy by Brunei military authorities.  In special circumstances, however, consideration would be given to applications submitted by the Embassy for such records, each case being decided on its merits. 

MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE

Available.  Obtained by application to the Registrar of Marriages (Attorney General), Attorney General's Chambers, Bandar Seri Begawan, or to the Registrar of Marriages for the area in which the marriage was solemnized and/or registered.  The pertinent legislation is as follows  :

(a)  Marriage Enactment (Chapter 76) of 1948.

(b)  The Religious and Kathi's Courts Enactment, 1955  (No. 20/1955).

(c)  Chinese Marriage Enactment, l955 (No. 6/1955).

(d)  The Registration of Marriage Enactment, 1961 (No. 9/1961).

Certificates are issued under the following Ordinance:  The Registration of Marriage Rules (No. 45) of l961.

DIVORCE DECREE

As Brunei is a Muslim State, there is no civil divorce legislation for non-Muslims, who are therefore unable to obtain a divorce in Brunei.  Muslims may obtain divorces in Brunei under Muslim law at the Kadzi Court in each of Brunei's four Districts (Brunei-Muara, Tutong, Belait and Temburong).  These would be registered at the Muslim Shariah Court in each District.

SPECIAL CLEARANCE AND ISSUANCE PROCEDURES
