Mongolia - Travel Fact-sheet

Visa for Mongolia

The entry visa is required for many nationalities and must be obtained before departure. Check if your country has a visa exemption agreement with Mongolia, by contacting your local Embassy of Mongolia.

Exceeding the validity date of the visa is liable to a heavy fine.

Travellers wishing to visit China or Russia before or after their tour in Mongolia must obtain the necessary visa from the consulate in their home country. Indeed, it is so far not possible to obtain a visa to enter the territories of China and Russia at the border with both countries.

Vaccines and health in Mongolia

For most nationalities, no vaccine is mandatory.

We recommend, however, to be up to date for usual vaccinations (tetanus, typhoid, hepatitis ...).

Drink only bottled water and avoid raw fruits and vegetables.

It is important to be physically fit to undertake a trip to Mongolia, because some areas are very remote.

Always take your usual medications in sufficient quantities, and place them in your hand luggage to be sure to have them in case of lost luggage.

A medical travel insurance is compulsory.

 

Time in Mongolia

GMT +7 hours.

 

Electricity in Mongolia

220 V, 50 Hz.
Plugs type C and E.

Most yurt camps have electricity and you can charge phones and cameras in the evening.

For camping trips, we recommend that you take a powerbank, at least for your phone and the electric devices that you charge with an USB plug.

You can charge on the cigarette lighter of the vehicle. You can also take a solar charger with you.

 

 

What to put in your luggage for a tour in Mongolia?

You will receive a list of equipment to take depending on the trip, ride or hike you have chosen in Mongolia.

In all cases, keep in mind that you can experience the four seasons in one day anywhere in Mongolia and even in midsummer. So do not forget light clothing, but also warm ones and a windbreaker.

IMPORTANT: For tours including a domestic flight, please remember that the baggage allowance on domestic flights is sometimes only 10 or 15kg including hand luggage (depending on the companies)!

IMPORTANT - Flights in Mongolia


Be aware that very few airlines go to Mongolia, flights are therefore quickly fully booked, especially between June and September. Book at least 6 months in advance to have the best air fares.
If your luggage has been delayed, the airlines do NOT deliver it in Mongolia, they keep it available in Ulan Bator. If your tour has already started, and you are already in the Orkhon Valley for example, it can be very expensive to deliver it.
We can do it for you at extra cost:
- 50 € for a delivery inside Ulan Bator
- 100 € for a delivery in Hustai
- 200 € for a delivery in Khogno Khan
- 300 € for a delivery in Karakorum, the Orkhon Valley or Arkhangai
- 400 € for a delivery at Lake Khövsgöl or in the Gobi Desert
This cost includes the driver & the vehicle for 1 or 2 days depending on the distance + fuel for the vehicule for the round trip + meals and accommodation for the driver if the roundtrip is more than 1 day.
If your flight is late, the same rates apply if you need a private transfer.
