Authority at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport lifted the temporary ban on the entry of visitors at airport terminals which was imposed on 26th October, 2015 fearing subversive activities. The embargo has been lifted since the morning today (April 17, 2016).

As per the previous announcement, visitors were not allowed to enter Shahjalal  airport terminals on the ground of security reasons. It was said that the embargo would remain active until further notice.
