Bangladesh Visa

Do you need a visa to visit Bangladesh?

Find your nearest Bangladesh Embassy.

To enter Bangladesh, foreign nationals must have a valid visa. The only exceptions are foreign nationals of Bangladeshi descent (excluding those from SAARC nations), their children, and spouses, who are eligible to enter Bangladesh with a No Visa Required (NVR) stamp in their foreign passports.

Documents Required For Bangladesh Visa

A printed copy of the duly completed and signed online VISA application form;

  1. (two) copies of a recent passport-size colour photo with a white backdrop;
  2. Original passport with photocopy of photo page (valid for at least six months);
  3. An invitation letter from any Bangladeshi person, accompanied by a copy of his or her valid Bangladesh passport or national ID card, or an invitation letter from any Bangladesh organisation, as well as hotel reservation confirmation.
  4. Proof that you will be able to sustain yourself throughout your travel, such as bank statements or payslips from the previous three months in the UK or Ireland.
  5. Air ticket reservation (if possible).

Processing Time For Bangladesh Visa

We cannot expedite these processes, so we recommend that you wait until you receive your passport and visa.

The Bangladesh High Commission in London requires at least seven (07) business days to process a visa application.

If an application is required to attend an interview by the Bangladesh High Commission, the Consular Section of the Bangladesh High Commission will call the applicant and tell them of the date and time of the interview.

*Please keep in mind that the visas validity begins on the day of issuing, not the date of travel.*
