Just like in most places, you need to have a registered entity to import tech goods into Bangladesh. In Bangladesh, this role is played by an Importer of Record (IOR). The IOR must know a lot about the complex import and customs rules in the area. For instance, Bangladesh has a strict embargo against anything from Israel.
Besides the licenses and permits necessary to bring your tech goods into Bangladesh, you’ll also require a BTRC permit. The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) regulates everything related to telecommunications in the country. Talk to your IOR to understand how to get all the right paperwork for your shipments.
Certain manufacturers face restrictions imposed by the customs authorities in Bangladesh. To smoothly navigate these limitations and guarantee adherence to regulations, seeking guidance from TecEx’s compliance experts is a wise step. Our team possesses comprehensive understanding of the country’s import restrictions, ensuring a seamless process for you.
Since Bangladesh is classified as a least developed country, it gets special treatment with no duties when exporting to the European Union, Canada, Australia, Japan, and some other nations. It also enjoys duty-free entry for various products in the Indian and Sri Lankan markets thanks to the South Asian Free Trade Area (SAFTA) making trade with the region favorable. Nevertheless, you’ll still need a locally registered entity to play the role of an IOR to handle customs clearance for your goods.
