Five (5) Steps to Apply Bangladeshi E-Passport

You can apply for the new E-Passport in 5 easy steps. Here we explain how it works.

Step 1: Check if the new E-Passport is already available in your area

The new E-Passport is introduced step by step at the Regional Passport Offices in Bangladesh and at the Bangladesh Missions around the world.

If you use the Online Application you can check availability by entering the district of your present address and the Police Station which belongs to your residence.

You can also look up a list of Passport Offices and Bangladesh Missions issuing the new E-Passport in the FAQs section.

Step 2: Fill in your E-Passport application online

Currently, applications for the new E-Passport are possible as online application – start the application process right here. You will be guided through the process. And make sure to schedule an appointment for enrollment at the passport office to reduce waiting time.

Step 3: Pay passport fees

You need to pay for your new passport before you visit the passport office to complete the enrollment.

You can pay the passport fees online at the end of the online application process. You also have the possibility to pay at once to the supporting banks. We recommend taking the printed application form with you when making the bank payment.

Step 4: Visit your Passport Office for biometric enrollment

After you submitted your online application AND scheduled an appointment you can visit your passport officer for enrollment. Make sure you have all the required documents with you when you visit the passport office. At least this includes the printed application form, payment slip from the bank or online payment, NID card or Birth Certificate, previous passport if available, and other documents. You can only enroll at the passport office which belongs to the area of your present address in Bangladesh. The passport office is shown in the summary of your online application.

Step 5: Collect your E-Passport at the passport office

You will be informed by email as soon as your new passport is ready for pick-up at the passport office. If you provided a mobile number you also receive this notification by SMS.

You need to collect your new E-Passport personally at the passport office. Please bring the following documents when collecting the passport:

  • Delivery slip you received during passport enrollment
  • Previous passport (if available)

Only in exceptional cases, the passport can be handed out to other eligible persons:

  • Parents or legal guardians can collect passports of their children/dependents (for minors up to 11 years). Please present the NID card of the parents, Birth Certificate of the children, and according to delivery slips.
  • Authorized representatives can collect the applicant’s new passport in cases of serious health issues. This requires a properly signed authorization letter, NID card of the applicant, a previous passport of the applicant if available, NID card, or passport of the authorized representative.
