A total of 490 Bangladeshi nationals returned home on two separate special flights after being stranded in Maldives and Kuwait for over a month due to flight suspension amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The flight  from Male, Maldives, arrived at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at 3:00pm local time, said a top security airport official who confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune.

Speaking to Dhaka Tribune, an airport health officer said the Bangladeshi nationals had gone through thermal scanning at the airport.

"They arrived with Covid-19 negative medical certificates and were sent to home quarantine after screening at the airport," he said.
