You can get a Bangladesh visa either before your trip from the Bangladesh High Commission in London or on arrival in Bangladesh, depending on the purpose and duration of your visit.

Before travelling to Bangladesh, ensuring you’re vaccinated for a safe and healthy trip is essential. 

Make sure you’re up to date with your routine vaccinations. MMR, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, chickenpox, polio, and the yearly flu shot.

You should also get vaccinated for Hepatitis A, as it’s common in Bangladesh and can be contracted through food or water. The Typhoid vaccine is recommended, too, especially if you’re visiting rural areas or are adventurous with your food choices.

Consider getting vaccinated for Cholera and Hepatitis B. 

The Japanese Encephalitis vaccine is advisable if you’re planning outdoor activities in rural areas.

The Rabies vaccine might be needed for those engaging in adventure travel or spending a lot of time with animals. While there’s no malaria vaccine, prophylactic medication is recommended, as it’s present in some regions of Bangladesh.

Remember, it’s best to consult a doctor well before your trip. Ideally, 4-6 weeks in advance to ensure you get all the necessary vaccinations.

The best months to visit Bangladesh are from November to March. The weather is relatively cool and dry during this period, making it ideal for travel and sightseeing. This time is considered the winter season in Bangladesh, offering pleasant temperatures and minimal rainfall.

From November to February, the temperatures are cooler, especially in the northern regions. Making it an excellent time for exploring outdoor attractions and engaging in activities like river cruises or visiting tea estates. The cool weather also makes it comfortable to explore bustling cities like Dhaka.

March marks the beginning of spring in Bangladesh, characterised by moderate temperatures and the blooming season, which adds to the country’s scenic beauty.

Avoiding the monsoon season, which typically runs from June to October, is advisable. Heavy rains can lead to flooding and travel disruptions. Similarly, the hot and humid summer months from April to May can be challenging for outdoor activities because of high temperatures.
