Balukhali refugee camp is a Rohingya refugee camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.[1][2][3] The International Organization for Migration refers to the collective settlement of Balukhali and neighbouring Kutupalong refugee camp as the Kutupalong–Balukhali expansion site.[4][5]

In March 2021, a massive fire destroyed much of the camp, killing over a dozen people and further displacing thousands.[6]
