The decision is also a result of the high commission’s sustained diplomatic efforts to remove the remaining obstacles to business, tourism and essential travel between the two countries, she said.

“From 4:00am Monday (11 October), Bangladeshi nationals fully vaccinated with UK-approved vaccines will no longer require a 10-day hotel or home quarantine and a pre-departure Covid test.

However, a Covid test should be taken on or before Day 2 after arrival in the UK. Also, vaccination certificates issued by relevant Bangladesh authorities are required for all travellers as proof of inoculation status.

The travellers who have not been fully vaccinated with a UK-authorised jab must quarantine for 10 days, either at home or where they are staying, and should undergo a Day 2 and Day 8 Covid test.

The UK has so far given approval to four Covid-19 vaccines. Out of the four, three vaccines -- OxfordAstrazeneca, Moderna and PfizerBiontech -- are being administered in Bangladesh.

Earlier, on 17 September, Bangladesh was removed from the UK government’s travel red list, which came into effect at 4:00am on 22 September.
