50 Years of Bangladesh-U.S. Relations and Beyond

Bangladesh has made tremendous progress in the last 50-plus years since its independence in 1971. It has made strides in female empowerment, seen infant mortality plunge, and significantly increased literacy rates. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, Bangladesh was one of the fastest growing economies in the world. In 2019, its GDP growth rate exceeded 8 percent. Its growth has been supported by a demographic dividend, stable macroeconomic conditions, and strong garment exports. The United States has played an important role in supporting Bangladesh’s socio-economic growth, sending more than $7 billion in development assistance since 1971.

Nevertheless, Bangladesh still sees ongoing challenges with vaccinations of its very dense populations, increased inequality brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, and the continued crisis management of Rohingya refugees. There are many ways for the United States to support Bangladesh with its Covid-19 recovery, while promoting Bangladesh’s sustainable growth for the next 50 years.

CSIS is pleased to welcome the Foreign Minister of Bangladesh, Dr. AK Abdul Momen, and the USAID Deputy Administrator for Policy and Programming, Dr. Isobel Coleman to talk about the role of U.S. foreign assistance in Bangladesh’s success, and the future U.S.-Bangladesh partnership for the next 50 years.

A Conversation with Bangladeshi Foreign Minister H.E. A.K. Abdul Momen

This year marks the 50th anniversary of relations between the United States and Bangladesh. Over the past five decades, Bangladesh and the United States have developed a complex relationship that spans economic and security ties as well as transnational issues like climate change. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bangladesh had boasted a decade of impressive economic growth, and the United States remains the top destination for Bangladesh’s exports. As the Biden administration implements its Indo-Pacific strategy, Bangladesh’s relationships with neighboring India and China suggest that it will draw increasing interest from U.S. policymakers.

Join USIP and Bangladesh Embassy for a conversation with Bangladesh’s Foreign Minister, His Excellency Dr. A.K. Abdul Momen, on the lessons learned from the last 50 years and the path ahead for U.S.-Bangladesh relations.

Very Important Message for NVR Applicants

As per circular of the Government, to obtain NVR, you are required to submit a copy of your Bangladeshi valid/expired passport or Dual Nationality Certificate or NID or Birth Registration Certificate as proof of your Bangladeshi origin. While sending your NVR application, you must attach one of these documents, not your previous NVR. Failure to send the required document will lead to rejection of the application.

The huge number of incomplete applications pending in the Embassy will be disposed of in a week by matching the documents received via emails; but the new incomplete applications received from 01 April 2022 onwards will be rejected and returned to the applicant as the time required to deal with them is slowing down the entire process of issuing NVR.

The Embassy of Bangladesh in Washington DC - E-passport

Update on MRP reissue applications in the wake of MRP enrolment module being disconnected from Dhaka

1. Those applicants who have already got Enrolment ID at bdembassyusatracking.org will get MRP and they do not need to apply for e-passport.

2. The applications which could not be enrolled due to the recent discontinuation are being returned with the following note:

"Dear Applicant,
The enrolment of MRP Reissue was discontinued in 7 (seven) Bangladesh missions (including Washington, DC) by memo no. 58.01.0000.202.35.074.21-151, dated 09 February 2022 of the Department of Immigration & Passports, Dhaka. Due to this decision from Dhaka, we could not enrol your application for MRP reissue.

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.

We are returning your whole application package by the self-addressed return envelope provided by you.

You may apply for e-passport following the link given below: http://www.bdembassyusa.org/index.php?page=e-passport

Passport & Visa Wing

To apply for e-passport, you must have either a Bangladeshi NID card or a Birth Registration Certificate (BRC) having 17 digit number which is verifiable at everify.bdris.gov.bd. Additionally, you are required to have a proof of residence like valid visa or green card. If you have become a US citize...

Dear Applicants,
Due to sudden shutdown of MRP reissue enrolment and consequent transition to applications for e-passport, we have received more than a thousand emails and messages through [email protected], Google chat and this page in last one week. We are battling to respond in time, and there is unavoidable delay. We seek your kind patience.

FAQ: What can the applicants who have already sent their MRP reissue applications to the Embassy do now in the wake of the decision by DIP, Dhaka to discontinue MRP reissue in Washington, DC mission?

Ans. Please check the status of your MRP reissue application at www.bdembassyusatracking.org. If you find Enrolment ID, you are not affected by the decision of the discontinuation. However, if you do not find Enrolment ID, your application remains halted. You may either wait till the first week of March 2022 to see if the authority in Dhaka reconsiders the decision or you may apply for e-passport.

As MRP enrolment module of Washington DC mission has been disconnected from Dhaka, hence it is not at all possible at the moment to enrol any MRP reissue application. After completing the application procedure of e-passport, if the applicant comes to the Embassy, s/he can get back their MRP application package. If the applicant wants to get it back early, s/he needs to send an email to [email protected].

In case of the MRP reissue applications which have been received by the Embassy but remain unenrolled, the payment of fees will be adjusted if they come to apply for e-passport. While paying for e-passport by money order or cashier check or official check during biometric enrolment at the Embassy, if the fee for your e-passport is higher than the amount of fee you have already paid, you only need to pay the remaining amount. However, if the fee for your e-passport is lesser, you do not need to make any further payment and you will not get any refund either. Alternatively, you may bring a new money order or cashier check or official check if you want to get back the one submitted for MRP reissue.

02/25/2022

FAQ: How will you get appointment for biometric enrolment of e-passport application?

Ans. As online appointment has been suspended by the E-passport Project authority in Dhaka due to technical problem in the software, you are requested to seek appointment via email to [email protected] with a copy of the confirmation page of the submission of online application. You may give two or three dates of your choice.
