Citizens of some countries are eligible for a 30-day visa on arrival if travelling for tourism, business or investment purposes; check with the embassy/high commission in advance for eligibility. To obtain a visa on arrival, you must bring the appropriate fee in Pounds Sterling, Euros or US Dollars, carry a return ticket and be able to show you have a minimum of US$500 in cash or on a credit card.
To obtain a tourist visa, a hotel confirmation and letter of invitation may be requested. Business travellers require a letter from their own company as well as a letter of invitation from a company based in Bangladesh, mentioning the applicant's name and passport number.
British-Bangladeshi nationals holding a British passport can apply for a long-term 'No Visa Required' sticker, but should be aware this limits any assitance the British High Commission can offer you.
