The new land ports are Darshana, Hili, and Sonamasjid
Considering the sufferings of the Bangladeshis still stranded in India, three more land ports are scheduled to be reopened for their entry from India from May 16 in addition to Benapole, Burimari and Akhaura.
The new land ports are Darshana, Hili, and Sonamasjid.
The decision was taken on Wednesday in an inter-ministerial meeting chaired by Foreign Secretary (Senior Secretary) Masud Bin Momen.
As the facilities for quarantine under the district administration of Jessore have been exhausted, entry through the Benapole might be suspended for the time being.
The Bangladeshi travellers are requested to follow the guidance of Bangladesh missions in India in this regard.
All other restrictions and conditions imposed previously would remain in effect, according to the decision of the meeting.
High commissioner of Bangladesh to India, secretary of Security Services Division under Home Ministry, secretary (East) of Foreign Ministry, additional secretary of Cabinet Division, additional secretary of Health Ministry, and representatives of MoFA, MoHA, Armed Forces Division, Border Guard Bangladesh, relevant District Administrations and Bangladesh missions in India were present at the meeting.
