Bangladesh Cash Incentive

The government of Bangladesh has created a 2.5% incentive for Bangladeshi citizens living abroad when they're sending money to friends or family back home.

How does it work?

If you're a Bangladeshi citizen who lives abroad, the government will add an additional 2.5% of your OrbitRemit transfer payout amount (BDT) to your recipients account in Bangladesh. This 2.5% reward is paid as a separate transfer to your recipient and it won't show in the OrbitRemit transfer history.

What are the requirements?

  • You must be a Bangladesh national who is employed abroad, but not paid by a government agency or statutory body.

  • Your recipient must be a citizen and resident of Bangladesh.

  • If you send a transfer of less than 150,000 BDT there are no additional ID requirements.

  • If you send more than 150,000 BDT, your recipient will need to submit a copy of your passport and employment confirmation to their bank within 60 days to get the 2.5% incentive.
