They will be handed over CIP cards and a crest at a function to be organised soon, the ministry officials said.

According to the policy, Non-resident Bangladeshis are selected for CIP status under the remittance sender category if they send at least $2 lakh in a fiscal year.

The CIP (NRB) cardholders will enjoy a number of facilities for the next one year from the day of issuance of the gazette that includes a card to be used for entering secretariat while they will get reserved seats in government air, rail, road and waterways for business-related visits.

The CIPs, their spouses and children will get priority in getting cabin facilities in government hospitals for medical treatment. The CIP cardholders will be allowed to use VIP lounge and get special luggage handling facilities at the airport.

The government can include their names as members while formulation of related policies and they will get special treatment while meeting high officials at home and abroad.
