Britain has always had a strong trade relationship with Bangladesh. This makes understanding import requirements to this small Asian nation crucial.
Bangladesh is a relatively-new country, founded in 1971. Until that time, the country was a part of Pakistan, but feuding caused a split that created this small but populous nation. Bangladesh has just over 164 million citizens crammed into a mere 144,000 square kilometres, earning the area the designation as one of the most densely-populated nations in the world. Despite the strong working base, the economy of Bangladesh is hurting. Widespread unemployment leads to high poverty rates. Illegal immigration from Bangladesh is a distinct problem for neighbouring nations as the citizens seek for viable employment wherever they can find it. Political upset and rivalry have also taken their toll upon the nation. Bangladesh is an anomaly in the Middle East, however, as the two main political rivals are women; this is especially significant when you consider that the country is mainly Islamic and Hindu in religious affiliation.
While challenges remain in Bangladesh, there have been improvements that appear promising. The country's leadership has worked hard to reduce the out-of-control population growth, address poverty and focus on the country's health and education. While agriculture is still the major source of economic strength in the nation, gas has recently become a growing sector in Bangladesh. The country is also a strong producer of textiles, tea, rice, fish, leather, mangoes, mustard, bananas, potatoes and onions.
The United Kingdom does have strong connections to Bangladesh. A significant number of British businesses either have offices in the country or partner with companies in Bangladesh. Also, there are extensive familial and social connections between the two nations, making private shipments frequent.
While Bangladesh does restrict and prohibit some items from importation, they also publish a list of products that are exempt from customs. In most cases, these products promote industries or concerns that the government wishes to encourage.
Exempted products include:
Prohibitions and restrictions are in place for other categories of goods. This list includes:
The National Board of Revenue governs all customs and import concerns; to find out more information about prohibitions and restrictions, see their website found here.
While most packages sent for import into Bangladesh will be subject to the Value Added Text, some items may be exempt. The flat rate for the VAT is 15 per cent; however, importers who are considered "cottage industries" do not have to pay the VAT. Importers who wish to be designated as a cottage industry must keep their annual imports under a specified amount.
To expedite the importation process, Bangladesh makes it customs forms available on their website, referenced above. This also provides an easy to contact the National Board of Revenue directly for questions or clarification.
We also have information regarding Burma, China and India in the region.
picked up on time and delivered to Bangladesh with no issues! Very happy! But too expensive! need to look at your pricing for subcontinent
Sent parcel from UK to Bangladesh on Wednesday, there by following Monday. Very good, will use again.
Excellent service, I would recommend everyone sending parcel.
The pick up was good. The only thing was that id explained on live chat that i had no way of printing a label in the timescale and was assured that the driver would have one. Which was a real relief at the time. The driver however knew nothing about it and said he d have to contact head office. I felt a bit like he thought i hadnt checked. It was fine though. He still took the parcel.
Very good, very quickly
Purchase process was pretty straight forward. Parcel was collected by Parcel Force on Monday. Processed in UK and then sent on its way to USA (2-3 day service). End up being a 4 day service into the USA. Couldnt track the shipment using Parcel Monkey. Had to contact customer service via chat who simply provided a POD for the collection part of the service and was unable to provide DHL tracking details for 24 hours. Chat service was pretty unhelpful. Package arrived with some damage.
