US citizens encouraged to obtain visa before traveling to Bangladesh
The US embassy in Dhaka has encouraged all US citizens to obtain a visa before traveling to Bangladesh, reports UNB.
“If friends or family members intend to visit you in Bangladesh, we strongly recommend they obtain a visa before arrival,” said the embassy in a message shared on its website.
Recently, the US embassy said, some US 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.
The embassy, on Wednesday, reminded that 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.
