Travellers vaccinated with booster dose wont need Covid-19 certifcate
Dhaka, February 26: Passengers who have taken an anti Covid-19 booster dose, will no longer need a 72-hour coronavirus test certificate to travel to India via Benapole. Benapole Police Immigration Officer-in-Charge (OC) Mohammad Raju confirmed on Saturday (February 26) morning.
According to Benapole Immigration sources, passengers who have completed the two-dose vaccine and taken the booster dose will no longer need a 72-hour RTPCR corona test certificate to travel to India. However, when you return to the country at the end of the trip, you have to bring the 72-hour Corona Test certificate from that country.
Paresh Barua, a passenger returning from India, said those with a booster dose won't need a test certificate. But on his return to Bangladesh, he had to show the 72-hour coronavirus test certificate as before in Indian immigration. If the same rules were introduced in both the countries then ordinary passengers would be exempted from extra expenses.
Dr. Zahidur Rahman Zahid, who works in the Benapole Immigration Health Department, said that both Indian and Bangladeshi passengers need a 72-hour RTPCR certificate when they arrive from India.
