Bruneian International Certificate of Identity

Bruneian International Certificate of Identity
Issued by  Brunei
Type of document Travel document
Purpose International travel document
Eligibility requirements Bruneian permanent residents who are stateless
Expiration 5 years

The Bruneian International Certificate of Identity (ICI) is an international travel document issued by the Immigration and National Registration Department to Bruneian permanent residents who are stateless. It is valid for five years.

Eligibility

The applicant for an ICI must possess:

  • Either a residence permit or an entry permit, and
  • Be stateless

Use

A holder of an International Certificate of Identity can enter Germany, Hungary and Slovenia visa-free for a maximum of 90 days within a 180 day period.[1] In the case of Germany, in theory, in order to benefit from the visa exemption, the ICI must be issued under the terms of the 1954 Convention Relating to the Status of Stateless Persons and contain an authorisation to return to Brunei which has a sufficiently long period of validity. But because Brunei is not a signatory to the 1954 Convention Relating to the Status of Stateless Persons, in practice holders of an ICI do not qualify for the visa exemption to Germany. However, holders of an ICI can still benefit from the visa exemption to Hungary and Slovenia since the Hungarian and Slovenian Governments do not require the ICI to be issued under the terms of the 1954 Convention Relating to the Status of Stateless Persons.
