b) In case of child, any one of the above-mentioned documents of at least one parent and the photocopy of birth certificate that contains the name of the parent of Bangladeshi origin;
5. A photocopy of any court or official order in case of a name change. However, in case of women adding their husband's name as suffix, please attach a photocopy of marriage certificate.
Previous copy of NVR is not accepted as a proof of origin.
Please do not send an original copy of any document except the passport on which NVR will be stamped.
The recent trend shows that a huge number of applicants are sending their applications without attaching the required Bangladeshi official document (photocopy of old passport or DNC or NID or BRC), thus failing to give adequate proof of their Bangladeshi origin. The incomplete applications are being rejected and sent back to the applicants for re-submission with the required documents.
Fees: $50.00 (Fifty US Dollar) payable to the “Embassy of Bangladesh’’ in the form of Money Order/Cashier Check/Official Check (not older than 30 days). Cash/Personal Check/Credit Card/online payment will not be accepted. In case of more than one applications submitted together, a separate payment has to be made for each applicant. Please be informed that if the money order/cashier's check/official check submitted by the applicant is returned by the bank as unpaid due to insufficient balance, the NVR of the concerned applicants will be cancelled; and it will be published on the website and Facebook page of the Embassy. The matter will also be reported to the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Department of Immigration & Passports in Dhaka so that the concerned applicants can no longer receive any service from the Government of Bangladesh.
NO REFUNDS: Fees, once received by the Embassy, cannot be refunded, even if the application is withdrawn or service cannot be rendered.
Service by Mail: Applicants may send their application by mail. If so, the applicant must provide a self-addressed return envelope (prepaid/with appropriate postage stamps) and tracking number of Priority/Express Mail of USPS only. Each applicant should, preferably, send the application in one envelope. In case of the applicants having same address, not more than two applicants should send their applications in one envelope.
