Travel Health Information

The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advises against all but essential travel to the Chittagong Hill Tracts. This does not include the city of Chittagong or other parts of Chittagong Division. There is a high terrorist threat alert in Bangladesh at present, with travel during the monsoon season (June to September) being particularly hazardous. Bangladesh lies in a zone of seismic activity, so there is a risk of earthquakes in the region. Mosquito-borne diseases like dengue fever occur all year round. There’s been a significant increase in the number of cases of dengue fever across Bangladesh, including in Dhaka. You should take steps to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes. UK health authorities have classified Bangladesh as having a risk of Zika virus transmission.
