No international team has made the trip to Pakistan since the Sri Lanka team bus was attacked by gunmen in March 2009.
The High Court in Bangladesh vetoed a short tour earlier this year, and the latest proposal is again subject to judicial approval.
But officials are hopeful a schedule featuring one Twenty20 and one 50-over match will go ahead in Lahore in the New Year.
Bangladesh Cricket Board head of cricket operations Enayet Husain Siraj said: "We have in principle agreed to tour Pakistan.
"It's a commitment made by former BCB president Mustafa Kamal. We are keeping his word. The tour is subject to security clearance."
