Bangladesh High Commission in Ottawa is pleased to inform that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Bangladesh has developed a mobile application named Dutabash (দূতাবাস) to provide online services to Bangladeshi citizens at home and abroad in a simplified procedure.

‘Dutabash’ application is available at the App Store (for iOS phones) and Play Store (for android phones). By using the app, the service seekers can submit their document online for consular attestation. It also provides guidance on service delivery procedure. Detailed fee-structure is available at this Mission’s website (https://www.bdhcottawa.ca/attestation). Under this procedure a ‘QR code’ is generated instead of the ‘seal-signature attestation’ system.

We encourage all expatriate Bangladeshis living in Canada to use the Dutabash Mobile Application for their convenience.
