PCR testing requirements in Bangladesh
Unvaccinated travellers need to present a negative COVID-19 test certificate issued no more than 72 hours before travel. Fully vaccinated travellers are no longer required to present the negative pre-travel test result if they have submitted proof that they have received full doses of an approved vaccine. Children under 12 years are exempt.
What about testing at the airport?
A PCR test is not necessary upon arrival; however, one must present the negative PCR test report presented before departure.
Passengers who present COVID‑19 symptoms on arrival will be sent to a government-authorised hospital for further check‑up and must undergo 7 days of isolation at at their own expense if they test positive for COVID‑19, irrespective of the country of origin and COVID‑19 vaccination status.
PCR testing will be carried out again after 7 days, and they will be released when the test result is negative.
COVID‑19 PCR test exemptions are applicable to passengers younger than 12 years.
