Foreign Affairs Minister Shahriar Alam said the government was involving the UN refugee agency so that it could not be accused of sending anyone from the stateless Muslim minority back against their will.
"We have repeatedly said this repatriation process is very complex," local media quoted Alam as saying.
"We want to fill up the (repatriation) forms in their (UN) presence so that no one can say they been forced by someone or sent back against their will," he said.
There was no comment from the UN, which had previously said that any repatriation must be voluntary.
Alam asked for patience and said Bangladesh did not want to send back the refugees only to have them return, as has happened after past rounds of repatriation.
Earlier on February 5, the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) said the possible "acts of genocide and ethnic cleansing" by the Myanmar army against the Rohingyas could incite a religious conflict in the South Asian region.
Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said earlier in January that the country's forests and natural environment had been "severely" affected due to the large influx of the Rohingyas from Myanmar, particularly in Cox's Bazar, the Dhaka Tribune reported.
More than 655,000 Rohingyas have crossed into Bangladesh since August 25, 2017, escaping a military crackdown in Rakhine state, which many countries and human rights bodies have described as ethnic cleansing.
