The British government has said they have no plans to introduce repatriation flights from Dhaka but are monitoring the situation closely.
British High Commission in Dhaka has said they are working with the Bangladesh authorities and airlines to support British nationals who want to leave Bangladesh and return to the UK.
"We’ve been told that flights will resume on April 7 and we’re monitoring this closely," said the High Commission in its latest travel advisory on Sunday.
The British government is "prioritising repatriation flights" in countries where there are very large numbers of stranded British nationals, where there have been no commercial options available for some time, and where no further flights are scheduled for the foreseeable future, the latest travel advisory reads.
The High Commission created a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic for British nationals.
It said the High Commission will update travel advice with more information as soon as they receive it.
"If you’re unable to leave at this time, you should follow the advice of local authorities, keep in contact with friends and family, and continue to follow our travel advice," the advisory reads.
The British High Commission has been working closely with airlines to ensure as many people as possible can get commercial flights home in this unprecedented and rapidly changing situation. "Prices are a commercial decision for the airline or travel company."
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the UK government advised on March 17 against non-essential travel overseas.
