The Bangladesh Embassy in Beijing has started making a list of the Bangladeshis, who want to return from Wuhan after the spread of coronavirus in the Chinese city.
First Secretary of the embassy, Md Khairul Bashar, said that list will be completed in the next two days.
China has asked what type of aircraft Bangladesh will send to take the citizens back.
Earlier on Sunday, Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen said, "Following the instructions of the prime minister to bring Bangladeshi citizens, who are willing to return to the country, the government has made all arrangements, including arranging a C-130 flight to airlift them."
However, China has refused to allow anyone, including students from countries like the US, India, and Sri Lanka, to leave their residences for the next 14 days as a precaution on containing the spread of the virus.
Around 500 Bangladeshi students are reportedly stuck in the coronavirus-hit Chinese province of Hubei.
