UK adds Bangladesh to travel `red list`

The United Kingdom has announced that it added 59 countries including Bangladesh to its travel "red list," banning entry to people arriving from those areas.

The UK government announced changes to its travel rules that will come into effect at 4am on Sunday. The list was published on the country's official website on Wednesday (August 4).

Although, Bangladesh was named in the red list but India, Bahrain, Qatar, and UAE were exempted from the list. As a result, people of these countries will be allowed to get entry.

Those who come to Britain from countries on the red list will be refused entry while returning Britons must submit to 10 days of mandatory quarantine in hotels.
