Machine Readable Passport

According to ICAO guidelines, all non-machine readable passports should be out of circulation by 24 November 2015 meaning hand-written or non-machine readable passports are not valid for travelling after that date. The newly opened Bangladesh Embassy in Copenhagen is yet to start issuing Machine Readable Passports (MRPs) for Bangladesh citizens. Till date, Bangladesh Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden has been entrusted with issuance of MRPs on behalf of Bangladesh Embassy in Copenhagen.

The applicants are requested to contact Bangladesh Embassy is Stockholm ( http://bangladoot.se/ ) for new passports or re-issuance of passports. 

Once the Embassy is in a position to start issuing MRPs, the information would be disseminated through this website. This Embassy will then issue MRPs to the Bangladesh citizens living in Denmark, Estonia and Iceland. The Embassy would appreciate your kind understanding in this regard.

However, the Embassy may issue Travel Permit for one-time journey to Bangladesh. It may also issue Letter of Introduction (LOI) to an applicant intending to travel to Stockholm for MRP.

Required documents for LOI:

For person holding Bangladesh Passport (valid/expired, both hand-written and machine readable)

  • Original and copy of the passport
  • 2 copies of passport-size photographs
  • Copy of resident permit
  • No fee is required for this service

For a child below 5 (five) years,  the Embassy may issue Letter of introduction (LOI) to exempt his/her travel to Stockholm for applying for MRP. The required documents for LOI are: 

  • Birth certificate issued by Bangladesh authority (Embassy may issue Birth Certificate upon submission of requisite documents (details provided in Birth Registration section)
  • Birth certificate issued by local hospital
  • Copy of the receipt of on-line enrolment for MRP application
  • Original and photocopy of parents' passports
  • Resident permits of parents
  • 2 copies of passport-size photographs of the child and the parent(s)
  • No fee is required for this service

IMPORTANT!! RENEWAL OF MACHINE READABLE PASSPORT (MRP): IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO RENEW A MRP PASSPORT MANUALLY  AS IT  HAD BEEN BEFORE IN CASE OF HAND-WRITTEN PASSPORT. APPLICANTS NEED TO APPLY FOR A NEW PASSPORT ( RE-ISSUE). SINCE IT TAKES 45-60 DAYS TO RE-ISSUE A NEW PASSPORT, APPLICANTS ARE REQUESTED TO APPLY WELL AHEAD  OF THE EXPIRY DATE TO AVOID ANY COMPLEXITY.
