Bangladeshi passport holders are encouraged to replace their existing hand-written passports with Machine Readable Passport (MRP) keeping in mind that hand-written passports will be gradually phased out and will not be acceptable to many countries in the world from the second-half of 2015.
An MRP contains 48 pages and shall remain valid for 5 (five) years.
To obtain an MRP, applicants must possess a Bangladesh National ID card or 17 digits Birth Registration Certificate. Those who are not in possession of 17 digits Birth Registration Certificate may procure it by sending a copy of their valid Bangladesh passport to their respective City Corporation, Municipality, Union Parishad or by applying online at http://bris.lgd.gov.bd/pub.
