      Safety Tips for picking up cash in Bangladesh

      Instances of crimes have been reported from cities such as Dhaka, Chittagong, Khulna, Sylhet and Feni. Muggings, bag snatching and pickpocketing are common around popular areas. Do not carry large amounts of cash with you and do not display signs of wealth. If you need to collect a large amount of cash, take someone trustworthy along.

      Thieves are known to target taxi and motorized rickshaw (CNG) passengers, especially after dusk. You should also remain vigilant when using trains, buses, and ferries. Avoid walking or travelling using public transportation alone, especially after dark.
       

      Mobile airtime top-up options

      Recipients in Bangladesh can receive money from overseas in the form of airtime top-ups on their mobile phones. You may send money to prepaid phone numbers of all the mobile operators in Bangladesh, which include Robi, GrameenPhone, Airtel Bangladesh, Banglalink, Citycell and Teletalk. You may consider transferring money to mobile money wallets such as Rocket and bKash.
