Types of Bangladeshi passports
There are four types of passports issued by the Government of Bangladesh:
Regular Passport: This is the most common type of Bangladeshi passport issued to ordinary citizens for general travel purposes.
Diplomatic Passport: Diplomatic passports are issued to diplomats, high-ranking government officials, and individuals representing the government on diplomatic missions abroad.
Official Passport: Official passports are issued to members of parliament, government officials, and individuals representing the government on official business or diplomatic missions.
Special Passport: Special passports are issued to specific individuals such as judges, senior government officials, and others as determined by the government.
Bangladesh embassies and consulates provide consular assistance and support to Bangladeshi citizens abroad, including in cases of emergency, repatriation, lost passports, and other consular services
Bangladesh has introduced an e-passport or electronic passport. Demographic and biometric information, such as fingerprints of all ten fingers, facial images, the iris scan of both eyes, and personal data of the e-passport holder are stored on the chip inside the e-passport. The chip embedded in the passport contains digital information that can be accessed by authorized immigration officials using specialized machines. It is designed to enhance security and make passport authentication more efficient. Learn more about e-passport at - www.epassport.gov.bd.
What is No Visa Required (NVR) Endorsement?
The "No Visa Required (NVR) for Travel to Bangladesh" endorsement is a facility for foreign citizens of Bangladeshi origin (excluding SAARC country nationals) and their foreign-born spouses and children. This endorsement, placed in their foreign passports, allows them multiple entries into Bangladesh and permits an unlimited stay within the validity of the passport. It simplifies travel for the Bangladeshi diaspora, enabling them to visit family, conduct business, or reconnect with their cultural roots without the need for obtaining a visa for each entry. To acquire this privilege, eligible individuals must apply through a Bangladeshi embassy or consulate with proof of their Bangladeshi heritage. The NVR endorsement significantly eases the process of maintaining familial and business connections with Bangladesh.
