Important information

The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Dhaka requests holders of a German residence permit or national visa which has expired due to an extended stay in Bangladesh caused by the temporary halt of international flights and the government-imposed lockdown in Bangladesh, to immediately contact the Embassy for further assistance.

Please provide the below-mentioned documents when you contact the Embassy via e-mail to: visa@dhak.diplo.de.

Those who already have their residence in Germany will have to submit:

- Copy of passport

- Copy of German residence permit or national visa

- Proof of arrival in Bangladesh (flight booking) and intended departure to Germany (flight booking or reservation)

- New travel health insurance valid for a period of six months

- Details about your address in Germany

- Email exchange with the local immigration authority (Ausländerbehörde) about the request to receive a temporary extension of your residence permit (so-called “Fiktionsbescheinigung”).

The Embassy is only able to provide further assistance to residence or national visa holders in Germany to whom the responsible local immigration authority has denied the possibility to issue a temporary extension of their residence permit.

Please do not come to the Embassy if you do not have an appointment scheduled by our Visa Section since entrance would be denied to you.

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

The German Embassy in Dhaka is carefully monitoring the situation surrounding the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV2-virus). We have proactively implemented measures and developed plans to prioritize the health and well-being of our team and our customers and will therefore discontinue non-essential visa and consular services until further notice. Appointments for national visas already arranged during this period will be re-scheduled by the Embassy.

Exceptions remain for urgent essential visa and consular services. In case of emergencies or if you have other requests that cannot be postponed and are subject to a time limit, please contact us by e-mail to visa@dhak.diplo.de or by phone under +880 1714014000 (Sunday to Thursday, 9 am to 1 pm) in order to arrange an appointment

We ask for your understanding of these measures and call on your solidarity in these unprecedented times.

With warm regards,

Your Visa and Consular Team from the German Embassy Dhaka
