Welcome message

Welcome to 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 in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. The new website is more user-friendly, and serves as a reliable source of information on Bangladesh, its people, and government. We have included updated information on business, trade and investment opportunities and incentives offered by Bangladesh. 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. The updated information on consular matters, 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 and adding further content and dynamism.  

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 have undertaken a number of initiatives including updating the community database and organizing special services for Bangladeshi expatriates community in Australia – please visit our website for updates on these activities. I request you to register with the High Commission by sending email at mission.canberra@mofa.gov.bd. All information will be kept confidential. 

The High Commission and I remain committed to serving all stakeholders in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji 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 mission.canberra@mofa.gov.bd.

With warmest greetings,

Mohammad Sufiur Rahman 
High Commissioner
