They spend a tiny portion of what they earned from serving, cooking and cleaning the utensils in a restaurant on themselves and send the bulk of their wages back home to run their families.

A large group of Bangladeshi migrant workers are now worried that they may lose that opportunity as they are stuck in Bangladesh having returned home during the height of the coronavirus pandemic. They have no idea when they can return to their workplaces.

Many of them failed to get assurances from the foreign embassies about a return after visits. They are dreading the possibility of their visas and iqamas, or stay permits, expiring.
