Having a Bangladesh birth registration certificate is a pre-requisite for an applicant applying for a Bangladesh Machine Readable Passport (MRP) for the first time. Someone having an MRP, therefore, has the certificate. However, someone having an old Bangladesh passport and does not have the certificate can apply for registration. The birth registration certificate contains a 17 digit number which is unique for every person. The registration can be done once.
