It may be mentioned here, travellers completing a full dose (single/double dose as applicable for a full dose) of WHO approved Covid-19 vaccine can enter Bangladesh with the official proof of certification of vaccination and no RT PCR-based Covid-19 negative certificate is required.
On the other hand, travellers without having a full dose (single/double dose as applicable for a full dose) of the Covid-19 vaccine can enter Bangladesh if they possess RT PCR based Covid-19 negative certificate done within 72 hours of departure time.
For incoming passengers below 12 years old, no RT PCR negative certificate is required. However, when travelling with their family, they will have to observe the same health formalities that will apply to their family members on arrival.
Moreover, regardless of vaccinated or not vaccinated, if any Covid-19 symptoms are detected in a traveller on arrival, he/she will subject to the RT PCR/Antigen test by the health authority. If the RT PCR/Antigen test result is positive, he/she will be sent to isolation at a government-nominated facility or hotel at his/her own expenses. Further RT PCR/Antigen test will be carried out after 07 days and he/she will be released if the test result is negative.
