Brunei is a Muslim country and has a Ministry of Religious Affairs to foster and to promote Islam. They are relatively strict in terms of religion and the ministry has special officers to investigate any breach of Islamic law by Muslims. Khalwat is one crime that these officers are keeping a sharp eye on. Khalwat is when unmarried couples stand or sit too close to each other after dark. Getting nailed for this crime can mean imprisonment and a fine.

Sale of alcohol is banned. Non-Islamic restaurants (such as Chinese places) that serves pork must display signs stating that they are not suitable for Muslims' consumption.

You may practice other religions in peace and harmony.
