Holy See

Holy See–Bangladesh relations are foreign relations between the Holy See and Bangladesh. The Holy See has a nunciature in the Baridhara Diplomatic Enclave in Dhaka, while Bangladesh has an ambassador accredited to the Holy See. As of December 2009, Md. Abdul Hannan was the ambassador of Bangladesh to the Holy See.[1] Since July 2013, Archbishop George Kocherry has been the Apostolic Nuncio to Bangladesh.

Two popes have visited Bangladesh: Pope Pius VI in November 1970 (then as East Pakistan), and Pope John Paul II in November 1986. Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Wajed visited the Vatican.[1]
