Unvaccinated passengers must quarantine at home for 14 days

The Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) has updated its guidelines regarding air travellers entering the country from any country in the world.

In a circular issued on Saturday night, it said that no quarantine will be needed for vaccinated travellers coming from anywhere across the globe, except from 13 countries.

The 13 countries are Armenia, Bulgaria, Estonia, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Mongolia, Palestine, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia and Ukraine.

According to the guideline, vaccinated passengers coming from these countries will have to stay in home quarantine for seven days and if unvaccinated they will be institutionally quarantined for seven days.

However, unvaccinated travellers from anywhere will have to quarantine at home for 14 days following arrival.

The latest rules will remain in effect until further notice.

The circular said that those who are interested in coming to Bangladesh must have a negative report of the Covid-19 test in the RT-PCR system. Samples must be tested within 72 hours of flight travel.

However, Covid-19 testing is not mandatory for children under 12 years of age. Passengers under the age of 18 who have not been vaccinated can come to Bangladesh with other family members who have been vaccinated.

If any passenger shows Covid-19 symptoms on arrival, he or she will be sent to a government-authorized hospital for a further check-up or will be sent to seven-day isolation at government-nominated facilities or hotels at their own expense.

Afterwards, an RT-PCR test will be carried out again and if the result is negative, the passenger will be released, the circular added.

CAAB, however, mentioned that Air Bubble flights with India will continue under the previous arrangement.
