Other consular services
Notarial and documentary services
For legal reasons, we’re unable to carry out notarial acts in Commonwealth countries. This includes certifying documents as true copies of originals, administering oaths or taking affidavits. For these or other notarial acts, you should contact a local notary. Ais available to confirm we do not offer these services in Bangladesh.
We charge fees for some of our services. See the full list of consular fees in Bangladesh.
We also provide services in Dhaka.
Development work in Bangladesh
Bangladesh is an important trading partner, with untapped potential for British firms. Development work, alongside trade and diplomacy, gives the UK a favoured and trusted position with the government and citizens of Bangladesh.
