Unofficial e-darussalam Guide (2014)

This post hasn't been updated in over 3 years.

This guide was written in February 2014 and applicable as of then. In November 2014, the e-darussalam (gov.bn) website was revamped. While some features remain, my specific screenshots are no longer applicable. The ability to search all Brunei government domains is still possible at http://is.gd/govbnsearch but I am not sure if the search index is up-to-date. This will be my last update on this post; any writings about future changes to the website will be published in a new post.

You may never have heard of e-darussalam. It is a Brunei Government portal that was launched in 2011 with the shortest Bruneian domain name: gov.bn, in hopes that people would find it easy to remember.

Since its launch, it has been under the management of EGNC, or E-Government National Centre, a department under the Prime Minister’s Office.

I wrote this “guide” because I think e-darussalam has some neat features that are not highlighted well. Please note though, I have focused on the main “website” portion of e-darussalam, rather than its e-services that require login. Also, a disclaimer: I used to work on e-darussalam. Yay.

This guide is applicable to the website as of February 2014. I will update here if that is the case. As of writing, e-darussalam looks like this:
