Bangladesh was removed from the UK government’s travel red list, which will come into effect at 4 am September 22.
Grant Shapps, the UK’s Transport Secretary, announced on Friday as part of the UK’s simplified international travel system, a press release said here today.
Welcoming the decision, the High Commissioner of Bangladesh to the UK Saida Muna Tasneem said the constant and effective diplomatic efforts of Bangladesh foreign ministry and Bangladesh High Commission in London led to this positive outcome.
The High Commissioner hoped that future reviews of Britain’s travel system on October 4 would include Bangladesh on the green list.
Beginning on September 22, travelers from Bangladesh who have been fully vaccinated with a UK-approved vaccine will no longer require a 10-day hotel quarantine.
However, they have to take a COVID-19 pre-departure test and a COVID-19 test on or before day two after arrival in England.
The travelers who have not been fully vaccinated with the UK authorized vaccine must be quarantined for ten days, either at home or where they are staying and must undergo a Day 2 and Day 8 Covid test.
