The government has taken an initiative to bring back Bangladeshis stranded in the United States amid the coronavirus pandemic in a chartered flight either on May 14 or 15.
Bangladesh Embassy in Washington DC in coordination with Bangladesh consulates in New York and Los Angeles will facilitate their return by a Qatar Airways chartered flight, said a media release issued by the Bangladesh Consulate in New York.
The flight will depart either from Dulles International Airport or John F Kennedy International Airport for Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport.
Those who are interested to return home have been asked to complete online registration visiting http://galaxyaviationbd.com/airticket/ and buy the desired ticket as soon as possible as the flight has a limited number of seats.
The media release said the Bangladesh Embassy in Washington, DC is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in the USA, Argentina, Belize, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Guyana and Venezuela.
Earlier, the Embassy urged Bangladeshi nationals to stay in touch through 24/7 cell phone (+1-202-740-6305) for necessary support if any of them is stranded in any of these countries.
