Detailed Restriction/Reopening Information For Bangladesh
Data Last Updated: October 13, 2020

General Information

Very Limited Access

Bangladesh has reopened its borders to international visitors but with very limited access. Authorities resumed some international flights  since June, and intend to gradually reopen more flight routes in the coming weeks.

All foreign nationals must show proof of a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 test result dated no more than 72 hours before departure.

Arrivals from high-risk COVID-19 countries must complete a Health Declaration Form and Passenger Locator Form provided by cabin crew, and health officials will assess if you need to be quarantined for 14 days upon arrival in the country.

Mask Requirement

Mask is required to be worn in all public indoor, public transport and all outdoor areas.

Internal Restrictions/Closures

As part of COVID-19 measures, face masks must be worn at all times when moving in and around Bangladesh. The Government has asked people to stay at home from 10 pm until 5 am. Outside these hours, the Government has instructed that people should only leave their homes if there is an urgent need. 

There are ongoing restrictions of movement between districts. Anyone not complying with these requests could face legal action. Banking services are limited with many shops operating reduced hours. Emergency services including hospitals remain open. Some hotels and guesthouses are open, but not all, and services may be limited.

Airlines & Transport

The Government of Bangladesh has authorized the resumption of limited international commercial flights. 

Biman Bangladesh Airlines, Emirates, and Qatar Airways have resumed flights, and flights to Turkey and Malaysia are scheduled to resume around mid-July.  U.S. citizens wishing to travel should contact the airlines directly to purchase a seat.

Effective August 1, 2020, the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh has restricted the number of passengers on flights to and from Bangladesh.

For a two-aisle/wide body aircraft, there should not be more than 260 passengers aboard and for a one-aisle/narrow body aircraft, not more than 140 passengers aboard.

Limited domestic passenger flights have resumed since June 1, though cancellations are likely due to low demand.

Passenger transit through land borders with India and Myanmar remains suspended due to restrictions by neighboring countries.
