India has removed Bangladesh from its red list so that Bangladesh nationals can enter its territory without taking additional measures at airport on arrival from yesterday (Tuesday).

 "Due to request, Indian High Commission here has informed that Bangladesh has been removed from the Red List of India," said foreign minister Dr AK Abdul Momen in a message to media on Tuesday. 

 Meanwhile, the Indian High commission in Dhaka said Bangladesh is out of the list for additional measures at airport on arrival including post-arrival Covid-19 testing. 

 Countries in Europe including the United Kingdom, South Africa, Brazil, Botswana, China, Mauritius, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, Singapore, Hong Kong and Israel are still in the list of countries from where travelers would need to follow additional measures on arrival in India, said the high commission.
