Bangladeshi passport


Bangladeshi Passport is an ICAO compliant, machine readable and biometric e-passport issued by the passport holder for the purpose of traveling abroad. Bangladesh is the first country in South Asia to issue e-passports for all eligible citizens. The passport booklet isproduced, printed and issued by the Immigration and Passport Department of the Ministry of Home Affairs . The e-passport has an electric microprocessor chip embedded in it. The e-passport has thirty-one different security features, including a holographic image embedded in a thin membrane layer. This protection feature changes color under light and appears as moving.Demographic and biometric information of the e-passport holder, such as ten fingerprints, iris scan, color photograph of face and digital signature are stored on the chip in the e-passport. Depending on the age of the applicant, the e-passport is valid for five years or ten years and is distributed among eligible Bangladeshi nationals by birth or directly through the Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh or its foreign diplomatic missions . 

The Bangladesh government issues three types of passports. Among them is a red cover with a diplomatic passport; Blue cover which is the official passport; And green cover which is regular or ordinary passport. The cover of the passport is made of tear proof textile material which is resistant to chemicals, sweat, damp and heat. Diplomatic passports are issued only to Bangladeshi diplomats. Official passports are issued only to Bangladesh government employees, government officials and envoys. Other citizens of Bangladesh are given regular or ordinary passports. All passports are made of eco-friendly materials. It is an important historical landmark of Bangladesh along with all the blank visa pages of the passport and a picture of the building. Besides, their names are designed in both Bengali and English to attract popular Bangladeshi tourists. The page number of the passport is bilingual - written in both Bengali and English.


After the War of Liberation of Bangladesh Act No. 9 of 1973 (known as Bangladesh Passport Order, 1973) which was signed into law on February 8, 1973 by the President of the People's Republic of Bangladesh. Newly independent Bangladesh managed to create and issue the first passport. This passport booklet was a traditional, handwritten or handwritten passport and adhered to the relevant international law and regulations at the time. Subsequently, additional legislation was enacted the following year to improve the passport application process. This law stipulates that multiple valid Bangladeshi passports cannot be kept; There are citizenship requirements for passports; Etc.

When e-passports and machine-readable passports were not available. At that time the Immigration and Passport Department of the Government of Bangladesh used to issue traditional handwritten or manual passports. In 2010, the Bangladesh government announced plans to replace more than 7.6 million to create new biometric machine-readable handwritten passports.The International Civil Aviation Organization ( ICAO)Following the guidelines, the Government of Bangladesh started issuing Machine-Readable Passport (MRP) and Machine-Readable Visa (MRV) in April 2010. However, all traditional handwritten passports were honored. Honorably, the Government of Bangladesh has issued travel documents till the expiry date of their term. All traditional handwritten passports were successfully revoked before the ICAO's November 2015 international deadline.

In 2016, the Bangladesh government announced its plans to issue e-passports . Due to which the then Home Minister hoped that immigration, travel and visa system would be easier for the passport holders of Bangladesh.  New Bangladeshi e-passports are being provided in all major ports of entry with fifty e-gates in collaboration with a German company. Machine-readable passports are coming out in phases. E-passports will completely replace all machine-readable passports. However, all machine-readable passports are proof of fun and valid travel as they are written until the expiration date. With the introduction of the expected electronic passport or e-passport, Bangladesh has taken another important step towards its digital transformation. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the e-passport distribution at a conference at the Bangabandhu International Conference Center in the capital on Wednesday, January 22, 2020.
