Provisions for travellers

Entry to the territory: Partially Allowed
On arrival, all foreign nationals, aged 10 years and over, need to produce a medical certificate issued within 72 hours of travel indicating the passenger is COVID-19 negative.

Travellers will be asked to sign health declaration forms and fill out passenger locator forms.

Commercial passenger flights from the UK, Malaysia, Turkey, the UAE, Qatar, Sri Lanka, China and the Maldives are now permitted to land in Bangladesh. You should check with airlines to confirm what flight options are available. Flight schedules are subject to change at short notice and you should monitor travel arrangements closely.

Those arriving from, or transiting, the UK are required to quarantine at a government facility, or government-approved hotel, where they will be tested for COVID-19 after seven days. Those testing negative for COVID-19 in that test will be allowed to complete the remainder of a 14 day quarantine period through ‘home quarantine’. Those testing positive will be transferred to a designated government hospital where their remaining quarantine period will be assessed and determined.

For those arriving from locations other than the UK, health officials at the point of entry to Bangladesh will assess whether you are able to self-quarantine for 14 days or need to be taken to a government facility or government-approved hotel.

Passengers from, or who have visited within the previous 15 days, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Georgia, India, Iran, Mongolia, Oman, South Africa and Tunisia are NOT permitted to travel to or enter Bangladesh.

If your journey to or from Bangladesh includes a transit stop you may need to meet separate COVID-19 certificate requirements for that country.
