Govt launches call centre for expatriates
The government yesterday launched a call centre for expatriate Bangladeshis so that they could easily lodge complaints through it, which will be forwarded to the authorities concerned for taking necessary steps.
Expatriates' Welfare and Overseas Employment Minister Nurul Islam inaugurated the centre, Probashi Bandhu, at the capital's Probashi Kalyan Bhaban.
Initially, the call centre will cater to the needs of Bangladeshi workers in Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Jordan.
Through it, the migrant workers can discuss issues related to passport renewals, legal support, compensation and financial assistance and sending back dead bodies.
“If it turns out successful, gradually the service will be provided to the expatriates living in other countries,” the minister said.
The expatriates will be able to contact the centre at +88 09654333333 for assistance from 9:00am to 6:00pm (Bangladesh Standard Time) everyday or via Facebook, Skype or eprobashbondhu. [email protected].
