Bangladeshi nationals are eligible for HKG Transit without Visa by air to air and not leaving Hong Kong International Airport are exempted when travelling on Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon operating flights provided they are holding valid visas to The United States of America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, The Republic of Korea, United Kingdom or Schengen states and fulfilling the following conditions:

  • Transit between Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon flights at Hong Kong International Airport only.
  • Transit time in Hong Kong is same day or within 12 hours if cross calendar day.
  • If the visas of the mentioned countries are used or expired, Bangladeshi nationals can still be granted airside transit visa exemption in Hong Kong on their return trip to Bangladesh provided they are returning from the mentioned countries they were holding visas for.
  • Bangladesh nationals intending to leave Hong Kong International Airport or use hotel accommodation arranged by Cathay Pacific, Cathay Dragon or any other party during their transit in Hong Kong, are still required to hold valid transit visa for Hong Kong.

Should you not be eligible for the waiver, please ensure to obtain necessary visas for transit via Hong Kong before commencing your journey.
