Citizens of countries where there is a Bangladesh mission must obtain a visa before going to Bangladesh. Tourist and business travellers who do not have a mission for Bangladesh in their country of origin can obtain a visa valid for up to 30 days on arrival.

To obtain a tourist visa, a hotel confirmation and letter of invitation are required. 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.
