The international student has to fill up the form and submits it to the Registrar office along with the photocopies of the following documents: (1) data page and visa page of the passport; and (2) CUB student ID card.
Step-4. After submitting the application to the registrar office, the international student needs to contact with the Registrar office after two working days to receive recommendation letters for visa extension, sponsorship certificate and non-employment letter.
Step-5. After receiving the recommendation letters, the international student has to go to the Department of Immigration and Passport (DIP) office at Agargaon to submit the VISA application. Following documents are required to submit with the visa application form: (1) three recommendation letters received from the Registrar office of CUB; (2) original passport; and (3) photocopies of passport including data page, visa pages and page containing last entry date into Bangladesh.

There are severe penalties for possession and trafficking of illegal drugs. Some narcotics-related offenses are indictable by capital punishment, even may be death sentence.
Please remember that homosexual relations are illegal in Bangladesh.
Violating local laws may result in a jail sentence to be served in a local prison. Delays and inefficiency in the judicial system can result in long detentions until court hearings eventually take place.
The abduction of children and businessmen for ransom is not unknown. This does not appear to be particularly directed at foreigners, but it is advised to be alert of such occurrences.
Armed robbery, pick pocketing and purse-snatching can occur. Do not carry a large amount of money or wear expensive jewelry on the streets. Thieves often work in pairs on motorcycles or motorized rickshaws known as ‘CNGs’. Passengers using rickshaws or traveling alone in taxis may be vulnerable in sometimes during nightfall.
Be aware of phone snatching and do not exhibit costly mobiles on the roads.
Obtain an International Driving Permit or local driving license for driving in Bangladesh.
Road-rules are not properly followed in Dhaka city and take measures for your own safety. Do not expect pedestrian-give way by the vehicles. Drivers of larger vehicles expect to be given the right side of the road. Speeding, dangerous and aggressive overtaking and sudden maneuvers without indicating cause frequent and serious accidents. Take particular care on long road journeys and use well-traveled and well-lit routes. Traffic is heavy and chaotic in urban areas. City streets are extremely congested.
Driving at night is dangerous as many vehicles are unlit or travel on full-beam.
On some trains first class compartments are lockable. Ensure the compartment door is locked if you are traveling overnight. For further information, visit the Bangladesh railways.
River and sea ferries are often dangerously overcrowded, particularly in the days around religious festivals and other holidays. There have been a number of serious accidents in Bangladesh and capsizing is common. Take special care while traveling in ferries and/or during occasions.
Nationwide strike or ‘hortal’ were once a common phenomenon, which is almost obsolete now. The political parties then called hortal resulting in the virtual shutdown of transportation and commerce. Clashes between rival political groups during hartals have resulted in deaths and injuries. It is strongly suggested to avoid all political protests, demonstrations, and marches.
Stay awake and alert when using public transportation.
Do not to eat, drink or smoke anything offered by strangers. Drugging is a growing problem in many Asian countries.
Bottled water is recommended for drinking outside.
Mosquitoes can be abundant in some areas and cities, especially during the rainy and humid. Protective nets covering your bed at night are often provided, even in some of the cheapest hotels and in all households.
Keep your valuables out of public sight and your luggage close at hand while traveling. Keep your handbag in close proximity. Keep your wallet in the front pocket of your trousers or under safe custody.
Talk to the department chair, adviser or consular officer before travelling to an unknown place and during travel at advisories or warnings.
