Anyone will be required ‘Movement Pass’ from Police for getting out from home in emergency need. The program has been launched with the coordination of the ICT wing of police headquarters considering the situation caused by coronavirus outbreak.
This pass will be given only after checking and selecting people involved in emergency services, i.e. transport of emergency goods, service providers, traders and employees.
According to police sources, the pass will be given in grocery store shopping, raw market, pharmaceuticals, medicine, jobs, agriculture, transportation and supply of goods, relief distribution, wholesale/retail purchase, tourism, funeral, business and other categories. Pass holders will be able to move on the road without any hindrance.
Those who need to move outside but do not fall into any category will be considered for passing in other categories.
To register for the pass, applicants have to visit the website: https://movementpass.police.gov.bd.
The applicant's national identity card, driving license, passport, birth registration, student ID etc. can be used for registration.
Assistant Inspector General of Police (Media) Sohel Rana said the pass would be issued soon to ease the movement of those who go out to supply emergency goods and services.
