Travel to Bangladesh is subject to entry restrictions

  • 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.
  • Passengers arriving from the UK, together with other countries not listed below, are required to complete a 14 day period of quarantine. In most cases this will be home quarantine; however, health officials at the point of entry may determine that a government facility, or approved hotel, must be used instead.
  • Passengers from, or who have visited within the previous 15 days, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Georgia, India, Iran, Mongolia, Nepal, Oman, South Africa, and Tunisia are not permitted to travel to or enter Bangladesh.
  • Passengers arriving from Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Chile, Croatia, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iraq, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Paraguay, Peru, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and Uruguay are required to complete the 14 day period of quarantine at a government-approved hotel and must travel with confirmation of these arrangements
  • Passengers arriving from Bahrain, Kuwait, and Qatar are required to complete a 3 day period of quarantine at a government-approved hotel and must travel with confirmation of these arrangements, where they will be tested for COVID-19. Those testing negative for COVID-19 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

The Bangladesh authorities will retain the passports of any passengers in quarantine and will return them at the end of the quarantine period. In all circumstances, people staying in a government-approved hotel, government facility or hospital will need to cover the costs of those stays. You may be tested for COVID-19 during these stays.
