National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til hele verden, herunder Bangladesh. Det gør vi, fordi mange lande i øjeblikket indfører omfattende restriktioner med kort varsel for at forebygge smittespredning med coronavirus/COVID-19. Restriktioner omfatter i flere lande ind- og udrejserestriktioner, udgangsforbud o. lign. Den danske ambassade i Dhaka har de seneste oplysninger på sin hjemmeside om myndighedernes restriktioner i Bangladesh og mulighederne for at rejse hjem til Danmark. Flere fly-, færge-, bus-, og togforbindelser bliver aflyst eller indstillet. Det kan gøre det meget svært at komme hjem til Danmark. Ambassadens hjemmeside opdateres løbende. Alle danskere, der i øjeblikket rejser i udlandet og ønsker at komme hjem, opfordres derfor til at gøre det nu. Du bør undersøge mulighederne for at udrejse i dialog med dit rejse-, fly- og/eller forsikringsselskab. Denne opfordring gælder ikke for danskere, der er fastboende i udlandet. Har du din hverdag i udlandet, er opfordringen, at du følger anbefalinger og anvisninger fra lokale myndigheder. Du bør følge de lokale myndigheders anvisninger og løbende holde dig opdateret om udviklingen via ambassadens hjemmeside, de lokale myndigheder og nyhedsmedier. Danske grænser vil ikke blive lukket for danske statsborgere eller andre personer, der bor i Danmark. Du bør følge Sundhedsstyrelsens råd. Du kan også læse mere om udviklingen i COVID-19 i udlandet hos Statens Serum Institut. Du kan læse mere om danske myndigheders tiltag på www.coronasmitte.dk.

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!
