Bangladesh offers entre-pot facility under which imported goods could be re-exported to a third country at a price that is at least 5% higher without changing quality, quantity or shape. In the case of entre-pot, the goods are not allowed to be brought outside the port area, but for the purpose of exports through another port, with the prior permission from Ministry of Commerce, can be carried from one port to another port.
Procedures for entre-pot trade are delineated in the Import Policy Order, 2015-2018 (Paragraph 2(1), Paragraph 2(6), Paragraph 5(7)(l), Paragraph 14 (4)), and the Export Policy, 2015-2018 (Paragraph 2.4).
