Bangladesh travel advice

There are reports that on 13 November the International Crimes Tribunal has sentenced Zahid Hossain to death for war crimes.

If you’re currently in Bangladesh or intend to travel to Bangladesh, even if you’re a regular visitor with family or business links, you should monitor news media and regularly consult this travel advice.

This verdict may provoke an angry response from those who oppose the sentence. Protests may take place in the area of the Supreme Court and other parts of central Dhaka. Limit your movements in these areas where possible. You should also remain vigilant across the country, taking care where there are large gatherings, political offices and rallies.
