Citizens of the European Union (EU) countries have been temporarily banned from entering Bangladesh after 12:00 pm on Monday to prevent the spread of coronavirus. If any foreign airlines bring European passengers after 12:00 pm, they will be returned. 

Chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (Caab) M Mofidur Rahman confirmed the information. 

He said that no passengers can enter Bangladesh from Europe except those from the United Kingdom from 12:00 pm on March 16 to March 31. All countries and airlines have been notified of the information. However, if any airlines bring passengers from these countries, the concerned airline will bear the cost to return them.
