Event: U.S. Embassy Dhaka is working around the clock to secure flights to the United States for U.S. citizens and their family members who wish to depart Bangladesh. We do not yet know the exact time or date of these flights but we will provide that information as soon as it is available. Please keep your phones nearby in case we need to call or e-mail you to confirm your interest in the flights or your contact information.
You do not need to call the Embassy to confirm we have received your previous e-mails. Thank you for your patience as we respond to your e-mails.
If you are a U.S. citizen or family member trying to depart Bangladesh and have not already provided your information to the Embassy, please send the following information to Dhakaevac@state.gov:
Subject line: “Flight (last name), (first name, middle initial)”
Full Name (as written in your passport):
Date of Birth:
Passport issuance date:
Passport expiration date:
Current Location (full address):
Please provide this information for every family member traveling.
Please understand that there is a charge for these flights. You will not pay at the airport, however; passengers will be required to sign a promissory note, which is a legal agreement to reimburse the U.S. Government for the cost of the flight, before being permitted to board. Please review payment information on promissory notes (DS-5528) here.
Passengers should be prepared to travel on short notice and must have current valid U.S. passports. Passengers will need to find transportation to Dhaka.
If you arrived in Bangladesh within the last 14 days or are recovering from COVID, you should be in self quarantine; Immigration authorities will not permit you to board the aircraft if you have not completed the quarantine requirement. If you are feeling ill or have a fever, please do not attempt to travel. We appreciate your patience during these challenging times, and will send another message when we have more information.
