They are accepting all visa applications except Tourist Visas. With this all the IVACs in Bangladesh are now functional.

The IVACs were closed down earlier due to the Corona pandemic. The IVAC at Dhaka was opened for issuing of Visa under medical, business, employment, entry and journalist category in October this year. It had remained closed for more than 6 months after the first Corona positive case was reported from Bangladesh in March and travel restrictions were announced by India.

Currently, all categories of visa except tourist Visas are being issued in Bangladesh by the Indian High Commission. High Commissioner of India to Bangladesh Vikram Doraiswami had said recently that the visa under tourist category will be opened based on the health situation in India and Bangladesh.
