Bangladesh: All you need to know to find your dream house
Is Bangladesh your next home? Officially called the People’s Republic of Bangladesh, this country has a vast historical and cultural background. It is also known to be one of the greenest countries in South Asia, largely explored and equally admired by expats, tourists and, of course, locals. Home to the largest Mangrove forest in the world, its landscape comprises a wide range of beautiful rivers, ocean-side views, and breath-taking forests with a rich biodiversity. Adding to the nature front, Bangladesh has a sea border facing the Bay of Bengal, and Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar beach is on the top two of the world's longest natural sea beaches. If you get the ship from here to Saint Martin’s Island, you can explore yet another beautiful place and take your time to admire the beautiful unique coral reef.
Just like moving anywhere else, there are some things to take care of before moving to Bangladesh. Make sure you have all the necessary documentation to move into this country – for instance, Bangladesh’s government asks for a visa when moving from certain countries. Check the documents you would need for a smoother relocation to be ensured.
Also, gather all the information you need about healthcare, expat health insurance and hospitals in Bangladesh before you move. The best and safest thing you can do as an expat in Bangladesh regarding healthcare is to choose a private international medical insurance plan that directly pays the providers or offers the best reimbursement for your international medical expenses.

If you have a valid international driving permit, you can drive in Bangladesh until your permit expires. Once that happens, you might have to take a driving test where you will be evaluated by a Bangladeshi driving teacher. Alternatively, you can apply for a new international driving permit. Most expats however, even the ones that have a valid international driving permit, choose to hire a driver and a car seeing as it is more comfortable considering the poor conditions of most of the roads.

When looking into buying or renting a place in Bangladesh, as well as in most countries in the world, it is very important to keep in mind that the cost of living changes depending on the cities. Check the average cost of living in the city you’re going to move to and set up a maximum budget for your rent as the accommodation in some cities, like Dhaka, have a fixed rent, which means there will hardly be room for negotiation.
Bangladesh is the only country in the world that was created having language and ethnicity as a common ground. Even though it is a big country, most of the expat community lives in the large cities of Dhaka and Chittagong. There you can find mainly apartments but also houses and other property types. Select the city you’re relocating to here at housingagent.com, and you will be connected with the top real estate agents in that city that can speak your language and are the right fit for you and your needs.
