VISA FOR TRAVEL TO BANGLADESH
Citizens of most countries require a valid visa to enter Bangladesh. The Embassy of Bangladesh in Washington, DC, USA determines the type and category of visa and duration of stay upon receiving an application. The types and categories differ according to the purpose of visit, length of stay and bilateral arrangements with the country of the foreign national. The United States nationals may get visa on arrival to travel to Bangladesh. The United States nationals along with foreign nationals residing in the USA can apply for Visa at Embassy of Bangladesh in Washington, DC. Five other countries namely Belize, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Guyana, and Haiti are also accredited to this mission. The Embassy is issuing only “New Visa”, not extension of visa. With reference to the local sponsor and police clearance certificate, visa could be extended from “Department of Immigration and Passport” (DIP), Dhaka, Bangladesh. Applicants must provide their email address on the application form to get updates of the applications.
Please note that the validity of the visa begins from the date of issue by the Embassy and not from the date of travel, which you put on your application form.
The only exceptions are Bangladeshi origin foreign nationals (except SAARC countries), their children and spouse who are eligible to obtain No Visa Required (NVR) in their foreign passports to enter Bangladesh multiple times during the entire validity of their passport.
