National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
We currently advise that all New Zealanders do not travel overseas at this time due to the outbreak of COVID-19, associated health risks and widespread travel restrictions. The global situation remains complex and rapidly changing. International travel can be complicated with fewer international flights available and disruptions to transit routes and hubs. Any destination could experience a sudden increase in cases of COVID-19 and a heightened risk to travellers of contracting the virus. Strict health measures and movement restrictions could be imposed suddenly. Should you decide to travel despite our advice, be prepared to remain overseas longer than you intended. You should also be aware that your travel insurance may not cover travel disruption or medical expenses. Managed Isolation and Quarantine in New Zealand All travellers to New Zealand must undertake 14 days of government-provided managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ). Detailed information about MIQ requirements in New Zealand can be found at www.miq.govt.nz. Pre-departure testing requirements for travellers to New Zealand All travellers to New Zealand (excluding those from Antarctica, Australia and most Pacific Islands) must show evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result before departure. Detailed information about pre-departure testing requirements can be found on the Unite Against Covid-19 website here. We recognise that some New Zealanders do continue to live and travel overseas. We continue to provide destination-specific advice about other safety and security risks below.

National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Vi fraråder alle rejser til Bangladesh pga. COVID-19 situationen og forekomsten af bekymrende virusvarianter.  Du bør læse om indrejserestriktioner, karantæne- og testkrav hos den danske ambassade i Dhaka, da der kan være krav om fx COVID-19-test, vaccinedokumentation, udfyldning af formularer el.lign.  Du kan læse mere om, hvordan du skal forholde dig ift. test og isolation, når du kommer hjem fra en udenlandsrejse på coronasmitte.dk. Du kan få svar på ofte stillede spørgsmål her. Rejseklar og Danskerlisten Du bør downloade vores app Rejseklar og tilmelde dig Danskerlisten, så modtager du information direkte fra os, hvis der sker større ændringer i indrejserestriktionerne, eller hvis rejsevejledningen skifter farve. Andre sikkerhedsrisici Hvis du rejser til Bangladesh, bør du til enhver tid være opmærksom på din personlige sikkerhed pga. risikoen for terror og en ustabil sikkerhedssituation.   Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til Chittagong Hill Tracts (distrikterne Rangamati, Khagrachari og Bandarban) pga. risikoen for voldelige sammenstød mellem lokale befolkningsgrupper og kidnapning. Risiciene er så alvorlige, at du bør have helt særlige grunde til at besøge områderne. Chittagong Division er dog ikke omfattet.

Danger level: 5

Do not travel..

Note of the displayed travel advisories
These travel advisories are automatically gathered. We use the RSS Feeds of the corresponding authorities of the single countries. In some cases, we analyse the website itself. Since the information originates from different countries and different countries have different understanding of danger and danger levels. Thus, the information displayed is an automized and normalized representation with no right to completeness and correctness. If a country is not shown, it doesn't necessarily mean it's safe. The information shown is a first indicator. Additional remark: the websites address does not endorse the situation of a 'Reisewarnung' (with its name). Often, it's just formal notifications by other countries. These can be the reason a country reaches scores of aorund 2.0 and still be a generally safe country to visit. Lower risk grades are usually no sign of a immanent threat!
