Retiring in Bangladesh

Hello everyone,

Why did you choose to retire in Bangladesh? What are the advantages compared with your home country?

What were your main considerations when deciding to move? For example, taxes, ease of transferring your pension, etc..

Are there any specific formalities you had to go through as a retiree moving to Bangladesh (for example, is there a particular retirement visa)?

What is Bangladesh's healthcare like? Have you had any good or bad experiences dealing with healthcare professionals?

Do you have any tips for other retirees in Bangladesh?

Thank you for sharing your experience.
