  • Reciting it at the beginning of the surah is not mandatory as there's no consensus that it is part of the qur'an. – Sassir Nov 26 '18 at 7:56

The other Bismillah is part of the narrative of the Surah. Suleman عليه السلام is informed of the Kingdom of Saba (verses 22-26) and he sends a letter to their Queen (verse 28) which reads:

إنه من سليمان وإنه بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

ألا تعلوا علي وأتوني مسلمين

Indeed, it is from Solomon, and indeed, it reads: 'In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful,

Be not haughty with me but come to me in submission [as Muslims].'

Quran 27:30-31

Basically the letter begins with Bismillah, and we are repeating the contents of the letter.
