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. A standard letter (ODT, 27.5 KB) is available to confirm we do not offer these services in Bangladesh.

Consular fees

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.
