After receiving them, police will verify all required information and then issue the pass

The Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has said that citizens will need movement passes to go outside of their homes for emergencies only during the strict nationwide lockdown from April 14 to April 21.

Inspector General of Police Benazir Ahmed inaugurated a mobile app to facilitate issuing the passes during an event at Rajarbagh Police Lines on Tuesday.

A movement pass will be required to step out of homes during the lockdown in case of an emergency or official work such as:

For receiving Covid-19 vaccine 

Covid-19 test 

Grocery shopping 

Medicine purchase 

Medical treatment


Goods transport 

Wholesale/retail selling 



According to the instructions given, several other necessities have also been categorized in the app.

Meanwhile, traders and employees of emergency goods transportation services, businessmen and job holders will be given movement passes after verification, said an official from Police Headquarters.

A pass can be used for one-way movement and another pass has to be acquired for the subsequent return.

An individual seeking a movement pass has to provide his name, phone number, date of birth, destination details, valid identification (NID, passport, driving license), and the reason for going outside.

The police will then issue an online movement pass after receiving the information and verifying it.

The government on Monday issued a gazette notification announcing a set of restrictions to be followed during the weeklong strict lockdown that started Wednesday to curb the alarming surge in Covid-19 cases and deaths.
