Dhaka Airport Guide to Dhaka Airport - Shahjalal Airport (DAC)

Dhaka Airport Terminal 1 & 2

Dhaka Airport International Terminals, Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, operate with international flights.

Although they are two terminals, they are located within the same building, that is why we describe their main features altogether.

Travellers are advised that the international terminal facilities are poorly maintained and outdated, which probably do not meet international standards.


The International Terminal Building only consists of two levels:

- Ground floor: Arrivals Hall. Find in this level the Arrivals Immigration Area, Visa on Arrival Cell, Baggage belt (1-4 to the right, 5-8 to the left), the Baggage reclaim area and further services for international passengers: Currency exchange, foreigner’s registration booth, CIP area, washroom, lost & found, etc.

- Upper floor: Departures Hall. Find in this section the Concourse Hall, where the entry gates are located. This level is equipped with the following services: Prayer rooms, Bank/hotel counters, Airport Police Office, taxi cab booth, washroom.
