According to the new guidelines by CAAB (Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh), travellers from 13 countries – Armenia, Bulgaria, Estonia, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Mongolia, Palestine, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia and Ukraine must complete quarantine after arrival in Bangladesh.
Travellers from these countries with full doses of WHO approved Covid-19 vaccines taken before 14 days of travel can enter Bangladesh. But they must carry official proof of vaccination and after arrival, they will have to complete strict home quarantine for seven days.
Meanwhile, travellers from these 13 countries without full doses of Covid-19 vaccines can also enter Bangladesh, but for that, they will have to complete a mandatory seven-day institutional quarantine at a government nominated facility or hotel at their own expense.
Another RT-PCR test will be carried out after seven days and they will be released when the test result is negative.
Travellers from any other country with full doses of vaccines can enter Bangladesh while no quarantine is required on arrival.
On the other hand, travellers from any other country apart from these 13 without full doses of Covid-19 vaccines can enter Bangladesh, provided that they will have to complete a mandatory 14-days home quarantine.
Passengers originating from any country can have transit via these 13 countries mentioned above, provided that they are kept confined within the transit airport under the close supervision of the airlines.
Irrespective of the country and Covid-19 vaccination, if any Covid-19 symptoms are identified in a traveller on arrival, he/she will be sent to a government authorised hospital for further checkup and if Covid-19 is detected, they will be sent to seven-day isolation at a government nominated facility or hotel at their own expenses. RT-PCR test will be carried out again after seven days and they will be released when the test result is negative.
Passengers below 18 years old without vaccination, originating from any country, can travel with their fully vaccinated family and they will have to observe the same health formalities that will apply to their family members on arrival.
All incoming passengers, except children below 12 years old, shall mandatorily possess RT-PCR based Covid-19 negative certificate. The PCR test must be done within 72 hours of the flight departure time.
