Entry requirements (visa/passport)
If you're unsure of the entry requirements for Mongolia, including visa and other immigration information, ask your travel agent or contact the nearest Embassy or Consulate of Mongolia. Up-to-date details on visa requirements can also be found at on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
If you intend to stay in Mongolia for more than 30 days or if you don't have an entry/exit visa, you must register your stay with the Mongolian Immigration Agency in Ulaanbaatar within 7 business days of arriving in Mongolia. For more information, please visit the website of the Mongolia Immigration Agency.
If you've been in Mongolia for more than 90 days, you must get an exit visa to leave the country. You can apply through the Mongolian Immigration Agency office. Please allow at least 10 days to process your exit visa.
Check with your doctor well in advance of travelling to see if they recommend any vaccinations for Mongolia.
Medical facilities in Mongolia are very limited and don't meet most Western standards, especially for emergency healthcare requirements. Make sure that you have comprehensive medical insurance to pay for private healthcare and bring basic medical supplies, including any regular prescription drugs, with you.
Sanitation in some restaurants is inadequate, particularly outside of Ulaanbaatar. Drink bottled water and use other routine safety measures to protect your health.
Air pollution is a serious problem during the winter months so if you have breathing or other health problems, you should plan accordingly.
