Under the Bangladesh Passport Order, 1973, passport is primarily a travel document of a citizen of Bangladesh and other persons for the purpose of departure from Bangladesh. In the Passport of Bangladesh, no where it is written as citizen of Bangladesh, but as national of Bangladesh. [Paras-40, 129 & 165]
