BERNAMA (Malay: Berita Nasional Malaysia; English: Malaysian National News Agency) is a news agency of the government of Malaysia. It is an autonomous body placed under the Information, Culture and Communications Ministry. It was set up by an Act of Parliament in 1967 and started work on 26 May 1968.

BERNAMA has branches in every state in Malaysia. It also has correspondents in Jakarta, Singapore, New Delhi, Bangkok, Beijing and Dubai; as well as stringers in Washington D.C., Australia and London. Most of the news media in Malaysia and Singapore and international news agencies subscribe to BERNAMA.

It also has an audio-visual unit known as Bernama TV which was established in 1 September 1998. Being the Malaysian government's official news agency, Bernama's content and views are decidedly right-leaning and pro-government of the day.
