How long does it take to receive a passport after application?

Passports are printed in Dhaka and sent to the mission by courier service. Most MRP’s take 30-45 days from the time of completed submission for delivery. We post receipt list of passports “Ready for Delivery” as soon as received in the mission.

Are there cases when it may take much longer?

The following cases need additional processing time:
(a) When there is a conflict of demographic module
(b) Issuance of MRP against lost passport;
(c) if the expired passport is more than 12 years old (from the date of issuance of the passport to the date of application is over 12 years). As such, the Embassy is unable to indicate date of delivery of the passport applied for.
