Passengers from European countries must stay in 14 days of complete institutional quarantine at government facilities or government approved hotels at their own expense.
Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) came up with the decision on Tuesday morning after reviewing the deterioration of Covid-19 situation throughout the country and around the world.
The directive will come into effect from zero hour on March 31 until further notice.
The passenger will only be released if the test result is negative in PCR test after completion of the quarantine, CAAB said in a circular.
Passengers originating from other countries will have to maintain 14 days’ home quarantine if no Covid-19 symptoms are found, CAAB added.
