Mongolia Visa

U.S. tourists traveling to Mongolia for less than 90 days do not need a Mongolia visa for entry into the country.

However, if you are staying for more than 30 days, you must register with the Office of Immigration, Naturalization and Foreign Citizens within seven days of arriving. If you do not register, you will be fined when you leave.

If you are traveling to Mongolia for more than 90 days, or you are visiting for a reason other than tourism, you must secure your travel visa before you arrive.

In addition, for stays of longer than 90 days, you must secure an exit visa before you will be allowed to leave. It takes approximately 10 business days to process exit visa requests, so be sure to plan accordingly.

During your stay in Mongolia, you must carry your passport with your Mongolia visa stamp at all times. Authorities have the right to request your travel documents at any time. If you are stopped and do not have your passport with you, you will be fined.


The requirements for securing a visa vary based on the type of visa for which you are applying. The items listed below are required for most types of visas.

However, the list is not all-inclusive. You may have to provide additional documentation depending on the purpose of your trip.

  • Completed visa application form. It is very important that your application form is completed in its entirety. Incomplete and inaccurate Mongolia visa applications will not be processed, delaying the issuance of your visa and possibly your travel plans.
  • Passport with at least six months validity beyond your scheduled stay in Mongolia
  • Passport photo taken within the last six months
  • Visa fees
  • Visa requirements are subject to change at any time. For the most up to date visa requirements, visit the website of the Embassy of Mongolia.

    Submitting Your Application

    If you secure your visa prior to your arrival in Mongolia, you can submit your application in person at the Mongolia Embassy or by mail. If you submit your application by mail, you must include a prepaid, self-addressed return envelope, so your passport can be returned to you after your visa is issued.

    It is advisable to use a delivery method with a tracking number. Mongolia visa applications are usually processed within two business days, but can take up to a week. Same day service is available for an additional fee of $131.


    The fee to process a visa application for travel to Mongolia is $131. All fees must be paid by money order or cashier’s check. Other forms of payment, including credit cards, debit cards and personal checks will not be accepted.
