This is so inappropriate for a cricket site but where else will I find so many Bangladeshi bhais in one place.....

My Question is anyone know about using their credit card (from N.America) in BD? The VISA ppl told me I can, but did anyone actually do that? What are the related problems? Cuz in BD u'll be charged in Taka and I couldnt figure out how it works....

Any suggestion/information/advise will be highly appreciated... Thanks

I did a few times, both inside and outside of Dhaka. They asked me for another ID, that's all. I had some rough idea about the conversion but to be honest, didn't think it was a huge deal. Hope this helps.

when in BD for the class project , most of my bideshi Grameen Phone team-mates used their cards - had no issues.

I used CITI card for several time in Bangladesh without any problem, not sure about over charge though.

Citi card made their changes in feb/march 2005... SO be careful after the chgs or at least call them up and get the chg rate...or use the other cards
