Vaccinations and vaccinated travel

Vaccinated travelers are still required to book a rapid lateral flow test or PCR test for day 2 after arrival and complete a passenger locator form. Travelers testing positive on the rapid lateral flow test will undergo PCR testing. Those who test positive on the PCR test will be required to self-isolate for 10 days.
Vaccination exemptions will only apply if the full dose and certificate were issued in the United Kingdom, Europe, United States, and other specific countries.

If traveling to England, travelers may apply for the 'Test to Release' scheme to be tested on the fifth day after arrival and be relieved from self-isolation early, if the result is negative. Those with a positive result will be required to self-isolate for another 10 days.

🛡️ Travel safety for Bangladesh

Exercise a high degree of caution

Flight options to Australia are extremely limited due to restrictions by third countries on the entry/transit of passengers from Bangladesh. To enter Bangladesh you must present a negative COVID-19 certificate on arrival (regardless of vaccination status) with the test taken within 72 hours of arrival. You'll also need to undergo 14 days of mandatory isolation in a private residence or hotel. We now advise: Exercise a high degree of caution in Bangladesh overall due to the high threat of terrorist attack.
