How to Communicate with the Consular Section at U.S. Embassy - Dhaka
As part of U.S. Embassy – Dhaka’s efforts to improve customer service and facilitate public outreach for consular customers, the U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce that the Consular Section’s Information Unit will receive and process all inquiries related to immigrant and nonimmigrant visa inquiries solely via email.
