      Do I need transit visa at Dhaka airport

      by Deep85 Online Now May 13, 2016 at 12:50 PM

      Hi everyone!

      I am an Indian and resident of Oman. I booked a flight from Oman (Muscat) to Dhaka and Dhaka to India, Kolkata (4 hours transit) with two different ticket in different airlines. Kindly guide me with following:
      1. Do I need a transit visa at Dhaka airport. If yes then, is it available on arrival for an Indian?
      2. Is it ok to travel with a check-in bag as well? Because I need to collect that at Dhaka then board again in for next flight.

      Thanks in advance.

    • Kolkata to Darjeeling

      by Britontour Online Now Mar 15, 2016 at 4:53 AM

      Overnight train (18 hrs) or flight,1 hr?
      I could save one night hotel cost but train journey's too long?
      Are the sights good enough to justify the train route?
      Besides, I have only 3 days to travel around Kolkata.
      What would you do in my situation?

      I booked online for a weekend 2 night stay at the Tiger Camp resort in Sunderbans (through Waxpole hotels). They sent me a message that the WB govt. has ordered the hotels closed for overnight stay. Is this true? What are my other legal and safe alternatives? Any other places you can recommend to visit instead of the Sunderbans?
