Bahrain has decided to remove Bangladesh from its Covid-19 travel red list, removing any bar from flights to resume between the two countries.
The decision will be effective from Sunday, said Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Friday morning.
Earlier, Bangladeshi Ambassador to Bahrain Md Nazrul Islam in a tweet said Bangladeshis will be able to travel to the country from October 10.
“Thanks to the Corona Task Force team of the Kingdom of Bahrain for removing Bangladesh from the red list countries starting from 10 October 2021,” he tweeted.
Migrant workers, who were unable to return their work places due to the travel ban, can go back to Bahrain from October 10.
In another development, Dr AK Abdul Momen said Bangladesh has been added to the UK government’s list of approved Covid-19 vaccines and the countries with approved Covid-19 proof of vaccination.
The approval will be effective from 4:00am on Monday, according to an announcement from the UK’s Department for Transport.
On September 17, the United Kingdom removed Bangladesh from the travel red list.
The foreign minister also informed the media that Maldives gifted 2,00, 600 AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccines to Bangladesh as a token of friendship.
