Applicants are advised that the visa officers are authorized to interview and demand necessary additional documents including employment confirmation and evidence of financial capabilities. The visa officers reserve the right to refuse a visa. If your visa is refused, the fee will not be refunded.

Based on an intended use of a visa or in other word, designation, there are “entry”, “exit-entry” and “transit” visas. In general, everyone travelling less than 90 days is considered as a temporary visitor whereas those staying more than 90 days for either private or official purpose are considered as foreign residents. Private purposes include study, employment, investment, family-related stay, and other private businesses. Foreign diplomats, UN staffs, those of intergovernmental organizations and media people who are coming to work in their respective organizations in Mongolia more than 90 days and their family members are considered foreign residents for official purposes. An entry visa is issued for temporary visitors, residents for official and private purposes; an exit-entry visa is for residents of official and private purposes those leaving Mongolia temporary with the intent to return; and a transit visa is for those transiting through the territory of Mongolia.

Validity term of a visa, the length of time you are permitted to travel to Mongolia from the visa-issued date ranges between 90 days to one year depending on the number of entries of visa and so does duration or length of stay. Visa may be issued with single, double and multiple entries based on purpose of a visit and applicant’s choice. Duration of stay for entry visa with either single or double entries is up to 90 days, for entry visa with multiple entries for temporary visitors is 30 days and transit visa with single or double entries is 10 days. For instance, entry visa for temporary visitors is valid for 90 days with 30 day duration of stay.
