Entry Requirements

Entry Requirements – Visas
Visas are required to enter Bangladesh. Click here to apply for your
Bangladesh travel visa

Dual Bangladeshi/British Nationals are able to obtain a ‘No Visa Required’ stamp, but this will limit the assistance HMG can offer you.

If you intend to use Dhaka as a hub from which to visit other countries in the region, ensure you obtain a multiple entry visa. If you are intending to work in Bangladesh for an NGO make sure that your sponsor has provided you with appropriate advice on the kind of visa you must obtain before arrival.

Entry Requirements – Working in Bangladesh
Since April 2002, foreign nationals working in Bangladesh have been required to obtain an Income Tax Clearance Certificate or an Income Tax Exemption Certificate prior to each departure from Bangladesh.

Local Laws and Customs

Local laws reflect the fact that Bangladesh is a predominantly Islamic country. You should respect local traditions, customs, laws and religions at all times and be aware of your actions to ensure that they do not offend other cultures or religious beliefs, especially during the holy month of Ramadan or if you intend to visit religious areas.

Women should cover their shoulders and wear long skirts or trousers. You should dress modestly to avoid giving offence.

You should carry a photocopy of the data page and Bangladeshi visa from your passport at all times, plus copies of other important travel documents, so that, if questioned by local officials, proof of identity is readily available.
