Opening a bank account in Bangladesh

Hi all,

is it difficult for expats to open a bank account in Bangladesh ?

Which documents are required to open a bank account in Bangladesh ?

How long does it take to open it ?

Is there any restriction for expats regarding the services (loans for instance)  ?

Which bank would you recommend ?

Thanks in advance for your participation,

Dear Julian

Thanks for a great interest for my country. What type of account do you like to open. There are various of account like saving, current(for business), fc account etc, std account etc. and account opening formalities also different. First you need to select your account type. thanks


If you are Bangladeshi than you just need your National ID card for opening a Bank account. If you are a foreigner than you need passport for opening a Bank account. Normally it takes one hour for opening a Bank account.I recommend Dutch Bangla Bank.
