Machine Readable Passport (MRP)
A 17 digit number is required for the issuance of Machine Readable Passport (MRP) which can be either the National Identity Number (NIN) or Birth Registration Number (BRN) of the applicant. As most of the expatriate Bangladeshis do not have NIN therefore applicants can have the IBRN (Interim Birth Registration Number) from the High Commission by applying online.
