The decision has been made as Italy has withdrawn a flight embargo for Bangladeshis with valid stay permits last week.
On Thursday, Foreign Minister Dr Momen said the flight embargo to Italy has been withdrawn for Bangladeshis with valid Italian stay permits following a request from Dhaka.
Only the expatriate Bangladeshis with an Italian residence permit, who have been stuck here due to coronavirus and got their stay permits expired, can apply for Italian visa here, he added.
