What to Expect When Moving to Bangladesh from New York
Formerly Easy Pakistan, Bangladesh is a small country in South Asia, the capital of which is Dkaha. The official language of Bangladesh is Bangla or Bengali, so if you’re moving to Bangladesh it is probably a good idea to learn as much Bengali as possible prior to moving overseas so that you can get around easily once there. The majority of the citizens in Bangladesh are Muslim, though some are Hindu as well. Bangladesh has an extremely high population for its size and poverty is a major issue, however, the economy has drastically improved since 1975. Bangladesh does attract tourists with its beautiful culture, archeological attractions and beautiful, native flora and fauna. Bangladesh’s population consists of several tribes which account for approximately 1 million people. Though there are many tribes, the four primary tribes are the Chakmas, Mros (or Moorangs) Marmas (or Maghs) and Tipperas (or Tipras). Bangladesh is certainly a country of wonderfully fascinating cultures, sights and sounds. Before moving to Bangladesh, it is important to find out whether or not you will need a visa in order to move to Bangladesh. There are many different types of visas and the process to acquire them can be complicated and time consuming. Make sure to contact your local Bangladesh Consulate prior to moving to Bangladesh. NY International Shipping suggests you give yourself plenty of time prior to moving overseas to have your visa processed to make sure you have it in time for your big international moving day!
