NEED OF BIRTH REGISTRATION NUMBER
Birth Registration Certificate or National ID is necessary for application for Machine Readable Passport (MRP) of Bangladesh. It is not enough to submit the old passport to have a new Machine Readable Passport. Without Birth Registration Number or National ID Number entered in the machine, it is technically not possible to process a Machine Readable Passport.
Birth Registration Number becomes particularly important for an expatriate Bangladesh national who does not yet have a National ID.
Birth Registration Certificate is normally issued by the local government in Bangladesh, that is, City Corporation or Municipality or Union Parishad, where his/her permanent address is situated. The High Commission can help a Bangladesh citizen living in Sri Lanka in obtaining Birth Registration Certificate for himself/herself or for his/her newborn baby from the central birth registration authority in Bangladesh.
