We now advise all not to travel overseas at this time, due to the health risks from the COVID-19 pandemic and the significant disruptions to global travel. This includes to Bangladesh. If you’re already overseas and wish to return to Australia, we recommend you do so as soon as possible by commercial means. Bangladesh has confirmed cases of COVID-19. If you're travelling from Australia or a country with confirmed local transmission of COVID-19 you'll need to self-isolate in your residence or hotel for 14-days. If you've travelled to or transited through mainland China, Italy, South Korea, Iran or Thailand, and are showing symptoms, expect mandatory quarantine on arrival. Monitor your health closely and follow the advice of local authorities. We now advise you to: Do not travel to Bangladesh.
