"As far as I know, Bangladesh is not one of the countries for which the new regulation will apply," a senior official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, who cannot be named as he is not authorized to speak to media, told Dhaka Tribune on Wednesday night.

"We haven't received anything from the Chinese government. If there was any change, we would have been notified," he added.

"Currently, there is no direct flight between the two countries. If Bangladeshis want to visit China by special flights or via other countries, the passengers have to produce Covid-19 negative certificates and they will have to be quarantined for 14 days," he added.

Despite repeated attempts, the Chinese embassy in Dhaka could not be reached for comments.
