UK removes Bangladesh from travel red list

The UK will remove Bangladesh from its travel "red" list starting September 22.

The country will be moved to the lower-risk "amber list" from 4:00am on September 22, which means travellers from Bangladesh will no longer require 10-day quarantine as part of Covid safety measures in a government-sanctioned hotel from that day.

Travellers arriving from countries that are "amber" must quarantine for a minimum of 10 days upon arrival in the UK. However, there is no requirement to do this in a government-sanctioned hotel; one can self-isolate at home or where they are staying.

Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen praised the British government's decision and thanked them for taking into consideration Bangladesh's request.

It is great news. Momen stated in a video that she had requested Bangladesh's government to take Bangladesh off the red list during a recent visit to the UK.

"We are grateful to the British government. "We are grateful," stated the foreign minister, who is traveling abroad with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

Passengers from countries on the "amber" list will need to fill out a passenger locator form and bring a negative Covid-19 testing result to border controls.

Travellers coming from "amber" nations must book and pay for Covid-19 testing on the days two and eight following their home quarantine.
