COVID-19 has triggered dramatic changes to how we travel. If you’re planning a trip to Bangladesh, these tips will help you navigate this new traveling reality:
- Investigate what, if any, rules or restrictions apply to both your destination and origin. You may not be able to travel depending on local circumstances, so be sure to check government advisories before booking.
- When you go through airport checkpoints, keep your face mask on. You will be required to lower it briefly for identification purposes. Anyone refusing to wear a mask may be fined and denied boarding.
- Rather than handing a TSA officer your boarding pass, position it straight on the reader yourself. After that, hold it up for inspection.
- TSA now permits passengers to take one container of hand sanitizer, up to 12 oz (350 ml) in size, in carry-on luggage. This will need to be removed from your bag for X-ray screening.
- Place any personal items (e.g, keys, phone and coins) in your carry-on instead of a bin to minimize handling during screening.
- If you’re bringing food on the plane, put it in a clear plastic bag and then into a screening bin. This reduces the likelihood that a TSA officer will need to touch your food container or carry-on bag for closer inspection.
