    All new settlement applications made in Bangladesh from Sunday 15 June 2014 onwards will be processed in the British High Commission New Delhi.

    To facilitate this process, customers in Bangladesh must provide a full copy of any original passports submitted including all pages of the passport with your application.

    Your original passport will stay in Bangladesh and the copy will be sent to New Delhi with your application form. This is a change in process only. There will be no difference to our customer service standards and your application will still be processed within the current standards for settlement applications made outside of the UK.
