Hi Veikko, Attached is the latest Brunei licence application form. Applications are now being handled by a different organisation. Address, phone number on application form. It currently seems to be no problem whatever to get a licence.
Best regards Ian 9M2/G3TMA

Hi Veikko! I was in Brunei this weekend and visited the Ministry of Communications, Licencing & Frequency Department which is located at the Old Airport. The person responsible for amateur licences is Hamidoon Hj Mahmud. Telephone is 00673 2 322 176 and Fax is 00673 2 381 273. The licence fee is 25
Brunei dollars. To bring equipment into the country you have to leave it with the Customs at the Airport and then go to the Old Airport to get an Import
Permit document. Back to Customs to retrieve the equipment and then back to the Old Airport for an Approval document. Cost 20 dollars for Import Permit and 50 dollars for Approval document.

Best Regards Ian 9M2/G3TMA, now V8ATC (see below)
