The Ministry of Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment in Bangladesh is responsible for actively monitoring the activities of Bangladeshi workers employed abroad. To ensure compliance, the ministry has established the Bureau of Manpower, Employment, and Training (BMET). The BMET requires Bangladeshi expatriates to obtain an immigration clearance card before traveling to other countries for employment purposes. 

Read on as Wego provides you all the necessary information about registering for the BMET database and checking your card status online.

What is a BMET clearance card?

As mentioned previously, the BMET clearance card is a crucial document that Bangladeshi workers must obtain before leaving the country. Regardless of possessing a valid work visa, individuals cannot clear immigration without this document.

The card includes essential information such as passport details, visa information, and the cardholder’s biometric data.
