IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR AUSTRALIAN CITIZENS:
Do not travel to Bangladesh at this time. If you are already in Bangladesh and wish to return, do so as soon as possible by commercial means. Flight options to leave Bangladesh may soon become less available.
If you can't or decide not to return to Australia, follow the advice of local authorities and minimise your risk of exposure.
If you do stay in Bangladesh, be aware our ability to provide consular assistance may be limited due to restrictions on our movement and a reduction in non-essential staff at the Australian High Commission in Dhaka.

Travel Advice and Registration
Registration of Australians overseas changed in November 2019.
Travellers are no longer able to register their travel ‘just in case’ they need assistance whilst overseas. If there is an incident or crisis overseas that could affect Australians, the Department may activate a crisis page on the Smartraveller website allowing travellers, family or friends to provide contact information.
Travellers can subscribe to receive travel advice updates via email and SMS. Further information is available on the Smartraveller website at Subscription.
