The Bangladesh Bank has allowed banks to help students who are studying in China pay their tuition fees.

In a notice today, the central bank said Bangladeshi students who are studying in educational institutions in China are still continuing their courses under online teaching arrangements from Bangladesh due to the travel restrictions imposed by Beijing for the coronavirus pandemic.

These students are now applying for visas for which all the due tuition fees need to be paid.

"So, it has been decided that authorised dealer banks may continue to effect outward remittances on account of these students till September 30, 2022," said the notice.
