PASSPORT VISA TP/TD DNC FEES

Applying for No Visa Required (NVR)

Eligibility:

  • Foreign citizens (except SAARC countries) of Bangladeshi origin along with their spouse and children are eligible for the endorsement of “NVR (No Visa Required) to Travel to Bangladesh" in their foreign passports.
  • Citizens other than those of the USA must submit the proof of residence in the USA (Resident Permit /Work-Permit /Valid Visa, etc.).
  • Foreign citizens having investment in Bangladesh worth USD 5 (five) million is also eligible to receive NVR.

Validity:

  • The ‘No Visa Required for Travel to Bangladesh’ endorsement is valid as long as the passport remains valid on which it is affixed.
  • The person can enter Bangladesh as many times as he/she wishes and can stay there without any time restriction within the validity period of the passport.
  • As per the circular of the Government, NVR is valid as long as the passport on which it is stamped remains valid. Something that becomes expired/invalid can not be transferred; hence there is no provision of transfer of NVR. While applying for NVR, please do not send a copy of your previous NVR.

Requirements:

  1. Please complete this Application  Form (Fillable PDF), then print and send/submit the hard copy to the Embassy with the required documents. As you are applying for NVR, you need to skip the sections titled "New Visa", "Extension of Visa", "Transit or On Arrival Visa" and "Police Verification". Applicants must provide their email address on the application form to get updates of the application;
  2. A passport-sized color photograph with white background taken within the last six months (attach with glue on the box of top-left corner of the form);
  3. Original US passport (including photocopy of the photo and information page);
  4. As a proof of Bangladeshi origin, a photocopy of Bangladeshi valid/expired passport (photo and information page of MRP/Page 1-5 of handwritten passport) or Dual Nationality Certificate (DNC) or NID or Birth Registration Certificate (BRC);

a) In case of foreign spouse, any one of the above-mentioned documents of the spouse of Bangladeshi origin and photocopy of the marriage certificate with notarized affidavit/declaration on its unbroken status.

b) In case of child, any one of the above-mentioned documents of at least one parent and the photocopy of birth certificate that contains the name of the parent of Bangladeshi origin;

5. A photocopy of court order in case of a name change. However, in case of women adding their husband's name as suffix, please attach a photocopy of marriage certificate.

Previous copy of NVR is not accepted as a proof of origin.

Please do not send original copy of any document except the passport on which NVR will be stamped.

The recent trend shows that a huge number of applicants are sending their applications without attaching the required Bangladeshi official document (photocopy of old passport or DNC or NID or BRC), thus failing to give adequate proof of their Bangladeshi origin. The incomplete applications are being rejected and sent back to the applicants for re-submission with the required documents.

Fees: $50.00 (Fifty US Dollar) payable to the “Embassy of Bangladesh’’ in the form of Money Order/Cashier Check/Official Check (not older than 30 days). Cash/Personal Check/Credit Card/online payment will not be accepted. In case of more than one applications submitted together, separate payment has to be made for each applicant.

NO REFUNDS: Fees, once received by the Embassy, cannot be refunded, even if the application is withdrawn or service cannot be rendered.

Walk-in:

Submission of application: 10 am to 1 pm
Delivery (after 3 business days): 3 pm to 4 pm

Service by Mail: Applicants may send their application by mail. If so, the applicant must provide a self-addressed return envelope (prepaid/with appropriate postage stamps) and tracking number of Priority/Express Mail of USPS only. Return envelope of FedEx is not accepted as it charges the Embassy, rather than the applicant for overweight of the return mail (or for any other reasons). Applicants belonging to same mailing address can send their applications together in one envelope and enclose one return envelope.

Mailing Address:

Embassy of Bangladesh
