The Bangladesh government has announced a suspension to flight services with Nepal to curb transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) on Sunday issued a circular in this regard. 

The decision has been made in order to curb transmission of coronavirus from the badly-affected neighbour countries, said the CAAB. 

However, only Bangladeshi expatriates/citizens who visited (not residing in) Nepal in 15 days prior to travelling to Bangladesh are allowed to enter Dhaka with special approval from the competent authority of Bangladesh.
