⚠️ COVID-19 Safety Guidelines:

The Consulate General of Bangladesh in Toronto continues ‘in-person’ consular services as an ‘essential service’ amid COVID-19 pandemic. However, as per the precautionary guidelines/measures promulgated by the provincial government, unless it is absolutely necessary, we recommend the applicants not to visit the Consulate General ‘in-person’ for services.

Applicants can always apply online for all consular services ‘online’ followed by both way postal deliveries (except few specified services, which need personal appearance).
