Hi, if this leaves from Miri to BSB, where is this located in Miri.

Do we have to go down in an immigration stamp to have our passport stamped?

How many hours from Miri to Brunei plus traffic?

Thanks. I will be travelling alone from Miri to Brunei. Please advise.

From Sarawak: A single company - PHLS Express Bus - runs two buses a day from the Pujut Corner long-distance bus terminal in Miri to Bandar Seri Begawan. There is no ticket window or representative at Pujut Corner - you must pay on the bus; the one-way fare is about $18 BND or 45Rm

The bus leaves Brunei at 7am and 1pm and leaves Miri at 8.15 am and 3.45 pm

Depending on traffic and the queues at immigration, the journey by bus takes around four hours.

I just did a visa run using the PHLS bus from Miri to Brunei and it was great.

Some tips. Catch 7:15 a.m. bus number 33A from the local city terminal near the Park hotel to take you to the long distance bus terminal. Cost of that bus is 1.60 Malay Ring. Get on 8:15 bus PHLS bus to BSB cost 40 Malay Ring. In theory you could get off bus sooner then BSB, but you would be stuck waiting around for return bus. Better to take bus all the way to BSB and you will have about 1.5 hours to enjoy lunch and shop. Convert some cash for lunch and 18 Sing Dollars for return trip. Yes it seems you need Malay Ring one way and Sing Dollars the other.

When you reach Malay immigration be sure to ask for 90 day stamp or you will only be given 30.

If doing this in reverse...you catch 7 a.m bus in BSB to Miri. The bus leaves from a small turn out on the road and not the city bus center. Okay first find the junction of the big river and small river downtown. Go just up the small river from the bridge till you see a turn out just large enough for a bus to sit out of traffic. If there is a big flag pole and small booth behind you and you are looking across the river at an open air market you are in the right place. You pay for your ticket aboard the bus. You may not have time to go to downtown Miri. Bring Malay Ringget you got from money changer in Brunei with you to pay for your lunch in Miri and your trip back to Brunei

It is a nice comfortable clean bus and cheapest way to renew your visa for 90 days without lots of bus changes.

Hi there,

I have heard rumors that the PHLS Sdn. Bhd. Express bus from Miri to BSB is no longer running. Does anyone have any current information?
