Terminal Information – Departing
This is only a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.
Flights to Dhaka depart from terminal 4. This terminal has its own stop on the tube (Piccadilly Line) but is not served by the Heathrow Express. If you're taking the express train to the airport you need to hop off at the station for terminals 1, 2 & 3 and take the tube for one stop, to T4. Remember to factor this into your journey time, and double check which terminal you're flying from before heading to the airport. Once you arrive you'll find that Terminal 4 has a great range of places to eat and shop. There are lots of designer and high-street brands to choose from, and as Dhaka is outside the European Union you can make the most of your duty free discount. There's a Plaza Premium Lounge in terminal 4 which has a spa, a champagne bar and a tapas menu.
Terminal Information – Arriving
The immigration process at Dhaka Airport can be quite lengthy: expect to spend 45 minutes to an hour waiting to get through passport control. The airport is 13 miles from the city centre and is just off the motorway. If you don't fancy taking a taxi or hiring a car, there's a train station outside the arrivals area.
British citizens need a valid passport and a visa to visit Bangladesh. You can either apply for this in advance from the Bangladeshi High Commission or get a one month visa on arrival. Visas on arrival are available to those visiting for business, tourism and investment reasons as well as to those who are visiting on official duty. Your passport only needs to be valid for the duration of your stay.
What to expect in Dhaka
Dhaka is five hours ahead of London and the currency is the Bangladeshi taka (BDT). Bangladesh is a majority Muslim country, and a lot of the local laws and customs are based around this. Same sex relationships are illegal in Bangladesh and women are expected to dress modestly, keeping shoulders and knees covered. Be respectful of the local culture, especially if you're visiting during Ramadan when people become more pious. Dhaka has a tropical climate. The temperature tends to hover around 25°C all year, but can drop to 18°C in January and rise to 29°C in August. May to September is monsoon season: this is when the city experiences 80% of its rainfall.
