Travel Alert – U.S. Embassy Dhaka, Bangladesh (December 26, 2018)
Location: Bangladesh, countrywide
Event: We encourage all U.S. citizens to obtain a visa before traveling to Bangladesh.
Recently, some U.S. citizens, particularly ones born outside the United States, have been denied entry into Bangladesh despite believing they had fulfilled the requirements for a visa on arrival. If friends or family members intend to visit you in Bangladesh, we strongly recommend they obtain a visa before arrival.
Please remember the authority to permit or deny entry to Bangladesh rests solely with Bangladeshi officials, and there is little to no assistance the Consular Section can offer to these travelers.
Embassy Operations: Routine services for U.S. citizens are limited at this time.
Actions to Take:
- Visit the Embassy of Bangladesh’s website for visa information.
