Welcome message

Thank you for visiting the website of the Bangladesh High Commission in Canberra, Australia. I am very pleased to introduce our newly designed website which we hope will serve as a one-stop portal and link between the High Commission and the wider host community, including Bangladeshis in Australia. The new website is more user-friendly, and serves as a reliable source of information on Bangladesh, its people, and government. The site contains useful links to essential services provided by various agencies and departments in addition to the consular services offered by the High Commission. We have included updated information on government, economy, tourism and other important areas of general interest on Bangladesh. As well, the website provides information on business, trade and investment opportunities and incentives offered by Bangladesh. The updated information on consular services, we hope, will ensure more timely and efficient service. Australia occupies a very special place in Bangladesh’s foreign policy and people-to-people relations, and the High Commission is committed to strengthening bilateral relations in every sphere including political, economic, trade, defence and sports and cultural relations.

The High Commission also serves as a non-resident mission of Bangladesh to New Zealand and Fiji, and we hope that this website will also serve as an important medium to enhance communication and collaboration with these two friendly nations and the Bangladeshi communities living there. The High Commission’s mission is to foster responsible public diplomacy and enhance people-to-people contact. Towards that end, we will provide regular updates on the various activities and functions organized by our office and seek the community’s active engagement and participation in these.

We will soon be undertaking a number of initiatives including updating the community database and organizing special services for Bangladeshi students in Australia – please visit our website for updates on these activities. I take this opportunity to thank the Bangladeshi community for their contribution in promoting economic, trade, education, sports and cultural relations between our two countries. The High Commission and I remain committed to serving you all to the best of our abilities. We welcome your suggestions and feedback on the new website and any of the services we render. For this, please send your views, comments and feedback to us at

With warmest greetings,
Kazi Imtiaz Hossain
High Commissioner
