BRUNEI TOURIST SIM CARD AND PREPAID SIM CARD IN BRUNEI

BRUNEI PREPAID SIM CARD BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about internet and data connection in Brunei isn’t the best especially if we compare with our countries that we are coming from in Asia.

Obviously the best thing you can do to connect online is getting a prepaid sim card in Brunei. It will be efficient and it will allow you to connect anytime.

We recommend you to get your Brunei tourist sim card in the airport. You can get in the kiosks or phone shops. There are only two phone operators in Brunei: DST and Progresif.

You need to bring your passport and you need to register the sim card. If you don’t register your sim card it will stop working in a week.

GETTING BRUNEI PREPAID SIM CARD IN THE AIRPORT (SIM CARD BRUNEI AIRPORT)

Getting a Brunei sim card airport is simple and easy. You can do in the Brunei international airport in a phone shop or phone kiosks in the airport. Make sure you are bringing your passport when buying in the airport, pick up service, or in a shop. And you register the sim card otherwise will stop working after a week.

It’s better to purchase your Brunei tourist sim card in the airport. Since it’s easier to check maps and it was great to check internet while we were going to our hotel.

Prices are the same in the airport than in the city. If you aren’t in a hurry you can wait until get to the city to get your Brunei prepaid sim card. There are phone shops where to buy your Brunei tourist sim card.

You can get your Brunei sim card in the airport, phone kiosks and phone shops. Just make sure that you present your foreign passport and register. The main operators in Brunei are: DST and Progresif. If you are getting to Brunei by bus from Malaysia you can also get your Brunei tourist sim card in the Bus Station or around the city in kiosks and phone shops to be online if you need.

BEST PREPAID SIM CARD BRUNEI COMPARISON

For this Brunei prepaid sim card is only the comparison with DST and Progresif. The main problem in Brunei to get a sim card you have to pay an annual fee of $25 BND to the government. So it’s better to get a Brunei tourist sim card since you will not have to pay that fee.

BEST BRUNEI SIM CARD CONCLUSION (CHEAPEST SIM CARD BRUNEI)

My Brunei Sim Card Conclusion is buying the cheapest sim card in Brunei with DST Brunei tourist sim card for $13 BND=$9 USD with 6 GB data and $20 BND=$14 USD with 8 GB data valid for 30 days.

In my opinion 6 GB data is enough data for a week since wifi works properly in hotel, hostels and local restaurants. If you stay longer you should go for Progresif because they have better rates but the coverage isn’t so good as DST.

You can find the cheapest Brunei eSim with Airalo Brunei eSim prepaid for $9 USD with 1 GB data valid for 7 days (USING DISCOUNT CODE GAMINTRAVELER 10%). For $18 USD with 3 GB data and for $27 USD with 5 GB data and valid for 30 days.
