On completion of the quarantine period, Covid-19 PCR test will be carried out and the passenger will be released if the test result is negative, CAAB said in a circular.

Passengers originating from elsewhere, except European countries and UK, will strictly maintain 14 days' home quarantine if no Covid-19 symptoms are found during health check on arrival in Bangladesh, CAAB added.

"But if any Covid-19 symptoms are detected or observed, s/he shall have to complete mandatory 14 days' institutional quarantine at government facilities or government approved hotel at own expenses," CAAB also said.

CAAB said irrespective of the Covid-19 vaccination, all passengers coming to Bangladesh must possess and show PCR based Covid-19 negative certificate during departure from origin and on arrival at the airport.

The PCR test shall be done within 72 hours of the flight departure time.
