The Embassy of Mongolia released the following information about travel to and from Mongolia due to the coronavirus 2019-nCov on 1st February 2020:
In connection to the World Health Organisation conclusion and advice and the decision by the Government of Mongolia, the below measures to be enforced from 1 February until 2 March 2020 in response to the novel coronavirus 2019-nCoV outbreak. Up to date, there are no confirmed cases of coronavirus in the country, however, Mongolia is considered to be at high risk.
Under these circumstances, the Embassy will be unavailable to provide express service for visas. Only standard service will be in place.
In addition, if you are planning to travel to China immediately before, or after, your visit to Mongolia, you will first need to have a Chinese visa granted.
If you have travelled to China since 1st January 2020, and have yet to apply for your Mongolian visa, you will not be granted a Mongolian visa in the next few weeks.
Please take this into account when applying for your Mongolian visa.
These temporary visa terms are likely to revert to normal on 2nd March, though we will advise you if the situation changes.
If you have any questions, contact our Visa Team for further information.
