The United Kingdom has taken a pivotal step in easing international travel by removing Bangladesh from its red-listed countries. The plan to shift the country's status from red to amber, after a thorough risk assessment for the spread of COVID-19, took effect from the 22nd of September, 2021. The United Kingdom is also finalising a plan to eliminate both the green and amber lists, only to keep a strict watch on red-listed countries. This will most likely be introduced on the 4th of October, 2021. While this decision is in the pipeline, travellers from Bangladesh are required to go through the same procedure in place for all other countries in the amber list. This includes getting a pre-flight RT-PCR test (within 72 hours of departure) as well as an RT-PCR test upon arrival. This will be booked and paid for by the passenger. Arriving passengers are further directed to fill out a Passenger Locator Form. Vaccinated persons are free to skip the 10-day quarantine.

The best time to visit Bangladesh is of course in the winter, between November and February. Temperatures rise sharply after this time, making the weather hot and humid. In the middle of the year, the Indian monsoons cover Bangladesh which could result in local floods – not exactly the best time for a trip to Bangladesh. During the time mentioned above, however, the temperature does not exceed a balmy 27°C and does not fall below 15°C even at night. Besides with the welcoming weather, many festivals are happening during these months that make the country, even more, inviting for tourists.
In most scenarios, going to a country during the months when the weather is not optimum could cheapen the deal but not in the case of Bangladesh. Most homesick Bangladeshi expats head for their country of origin during the summer break which elevates the prices of the hotels and other accommodation facilities. For a cheap Bangladesh trip aim instead to visit the country at the end of October till mid-November . It would not only provide you with cheaper airfare and hotel rates but also a more pleasant environment to explore Bangladesh.
Bangladesh is a small country with a large population. With an improving economy and a rising purchasing power, Bangladeshis use three international airports to get around the world and welcome foreign tourists to their homeland.
Even though all British nationals can get a visa on arrival for a month’s duration at the airport, it is advisable to apply for the visa and obtain it beforehand to enter Bangladesh. Get the visa for Bangladesh from the Bangladeshi High Commission in London so that you can skip the long queues outside the immigration office. Please make sure that you leave the country before the visa expires because that could result in fine and penalties. Upon entry, make sure that the visa officer has stamped on your passport correctly.
