Applying for a Visa

The application form may be downloaded from the website (  This is a fillable PDF form, so you may type the information needed and print it out.  You may also opt to print the form and fill out by hand as well.  Make sure that your handwriting is legible enough to read.  This may cause significant delay in processing.

The purpose of travel must clearly be stated in the application.  You must also attach documents in support of this purpose.  That is, if you are going to Bangladesh on business, a letter from the person/ business office/ government or non-government organization in Bangladesh who extended the invitation to you should be included in the application.  Submit this together with your valid Canadian passport with a minimum of three unused pages, for visa stamping.
