Some of you have asked me this question about Brunei associations and societies, and what follows is my answer:
Here’s a poll (optional, of course!) for me to better see how I can make this page more useful, especially for those of you doing research 🙂
For the sports societies, you can find the list here:

How about all societies? There used to be an official list, as I wrote in my old project update in 2011, but that website went down a few years ago. (We even had a draft application for B:Read, intended for association registration, but that draft went down with the website :/ )

This guide was written in February 2014 and applicable as of then. In November 2014, the e-darussalam (gov.bn) website was revamped.

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.

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:
