Nationals of a select few countries can visit Mongolia visa-free for a specified period of time. The duration the visa is valid for will depend on your nationality and can range from 14 to 90 days. Unfortunately, visa-free entry into Mongolia is not available for UK citizens at this time.
Mongolia visa-free countries for ordinary passport holders*:
USA, Malaysia, Israel, Cuba, Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macao, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Georgia, Belarus, Kirgizstan, Moldavia, Tajikistan, Laos.
*Official and diplomatic passport holders from China, Russia, Turkey and India may also qualify for visa-free entry to Mongolia.
This will depend on the type of visa you need as well as the processing and delivery options chosen. A standard Mongolian tourist visa service for UK nationals will take 6 business days to process at the Consulate in addition to the days necessary for us to process your application, collate the information to send to the Consulate and delivery. We also offer an express service which will cut down the processing time for Mongolian tourist visas to 2 business days.
The documents you need for us to submit your application to the Consulate depend on your nationality. In some cases you may be required to apply directly at the Consulate in person. Passport holders of the UK require the following:
If your visa is lost or stolen, you will need to apply for a new exit visa.
Firstly, you will need to contact a local police department and request an official statement confirming that your visa was lost. We recommend stating that your documents were lost, not stolen as this can make processing a replacement visa easier.
After these steps, you need to get a new passport from the British Embassy in Mongolia.
Mongolia official public holidays include:
Please note: Most, if not all official offices, including the consulates in the UK will be closed on these days — and often, processing times are slower before and just after.
Once you have completed your visa application, we start processing this immediately upon receipt of your order, therefore we are only able to refund the consulate tariff and postage cost if you cancel your order before we submit your visa application to the Mongolian Consulate.
If you have already submitted your application to the Mongolian Consulate when you cancel your order, or in the unlikely event that your visa application is refused, we will be unable to provide a refund unfortunately.
