About the Embassy
Welcome to the Embassy of Sweden in Dhaka, Bangladesh!
One purpose of this website is to provide news and information about Sweden, that we hope, will be contributing to a further deepening and widening of the links between Bangladesh and Sweden. Another purpose is to provide advice and information that we believe could be useful for Swedish citizens residing in or visiting Bangladesh. Our ambition is to keep the information up-to-date and responsive to the needs of those visiting our website. In order to be able to do so we would very much welcome any comments that you may have on the information that we are providing. If you have any suggestions as to how we can improve our website please send us an e-mail.

A service fee of 17 Euro (at the moment 1773BDT) will be charged by VFS.Global. Normally you have to apply in person at VFS. Holders of diplomatic or offcial passports may let someone with power of attorney submit their applications. Please observe that all visa applications are handled and decided by sent out Swedish Migration officers/supervisors.
Please contact Swedish sent out staff (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Embassy immediately if you have been asked to pay bribes or experiencing any other forms of irregularities.
Please note that the embassy has nothing to do with sellers/persons outside the premises of the Embassy who offer services for payment. No sellers/persons can influence either the processing period or the decision. Schengen visas for Sweden or the other countries that the Swedish Embassy represents in Dhaka can only be issued by the Embassy´s visa section. The Embassy of Sweden is also the only authority in Bangladesh issuing residence and work permit cards (UT-card) for Sweden.
