07 July 2023, Dhaka, Bangladesh
The wait is finally over!
We are delighted to inform our valued clients that a Greece Visa Application Center has started operation in Dhaka, Bangladesh. In partnership with Global Visa Center World (GVCW), the official visa processing company of the Greece govt worldwide, and VFS Global Private Limited, the service started to see some light after years of waiting.
This development comes as a great relief to Bangladeshi citizens who previously had to travel to the Greek Embassy in New Delhi, India to apply for a visa, which was a time-consuming and very complex process.
Hundreds of applicants were in the queue to get a family re-unification, work, and other long-term visas, but appointments and other issues were preventing them to get their desired visas and traveling to Greece.
With the opening of the Greece Visa Consulate in Dhaka, Bangladeshi nationals can now apply for visas in various categories, including employment, family, student, and digital nomad visas, right here in Dhaka. In addition to the long-term visas, applicants from Bangladesh now can even apply for tourism/business (Type C Schengen) visas.
We expect that a lot of problems regarding the appointment issues will be resolved faster now. The opening of the consular service in Dhaka was confirmed by the appointed Ambassador of Greece to Bangladesh, Mr. Asud Ahmed.
Mr. Prabuddha Sen, Chief Operating Officer (South Asia) of GVWC said “The establishment of the visa center in Dhaka for those interested in traveling to Greece for work, education, business, or leisure purposes will greatly benefit the Bangladeshi population.”
Though the applications will be received in Bangladesh, they will be assessed and decided by the Greek Embassy in New Delhi, India.
