Re-issue of Machine Readable Passport (MRP)

The Government of Bangladesh has decided to reintroduce the re-issue of MRP  only for the members of the Bangladesh Community who are not physically fit to visit the Consulate as well as the students who require passports for emergency purposes.  Kindly be noted that the re-issuance of MRP  will be discontinued after  15 September 2023.

The operation of the e-passport service will continue as before. As the E-passport has the option of having 10 (ten) years’ validity, the applicants are encouraged to apply for an e-passport unless they are unable to come to the Consulate due to unavoidable reasons.

Those who are able to come in person to the Consulate are advised to apply for an e-passport.
