As COVID-19 cases are on the decline, several countries have relaxed their travel restrictions. The latest update is from Bangladesh, where fully-vaccinated travellers are now allowed to travel without a negative RT-PCR test report.
For unvaccinated or partially vaccinated travellers, a COVID-19 RT-PCR negative test report conducted within 72 hours of arrival in the country is compulsory.
Also, children under the age of 12 years are exempted from the RT-PCR test.

Passengers arriving in Nepal by air or land no longer need to carry an RT-PCR negative test report, if they can show proof of complete vaccination (two doses) at the entry points of the country.
A negative COVID-19 test report (RT-PCR, True NAAT, Gene Xpert) within 72 hours of starting their journey is mandatory for other travellers.
