A Bangladesh machine readable passport is valid for 05 years and non-renewable. At the High Commission, the passport service is basically meant for expatriate Bangladesh citizens living in this country with valid passports and proper documents. The High Commission cannot issue an altogether new passport without a previous passport, except for new-born children. The High Commission  can re-issue a passpot, when an applicant's valid passport expires or when he/she wants to amend any information in his/her passport (however, date of birth cannot be changed).


The High Commission does not have any agent for processing passport, visa, travel permit or for any other consular service. The service seekers are advised to get in touch with the High Commission direct  for all kinds of service.


However, residents of Sindh Province (including Karachi) and Balochistan Province should submit visa application at Bangladesh Deputy High Commission in Karachi
