Bangladesh makes for a definite off-the-beaten track destination for your next holiday or vacation. If you go there, you might need to get a tourist visa depending on what country you are from.

I’ll break everything down for you below about how to go about getting the Bangladesh Tourist Visa.

Visa required for U.S. citizens before you go to Bangladesh:  No.

  • U.S. citizens can get a visa on arrival at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka, Bangladesh, however the U.S. State Department recommends applying for a visa before you go in order to avoid delays once you arrive in Bangladesh.
