General questions

What is a visa for Mongolia?

If you want to go to Mongolia for a holiday or business trip, you need to apply for a regular visa before entering the country. The visa is a sticker issued by the Mongolian government and affixed to the passport. With this visa you have permission to enter the territory of Mongolia.
The visa will be checked during passport control in Mongolia. If you arrive by plane, the first visa check will probably already take place at the airport.
Our staff will work professionally to ensure that your Mongolia visa application is presented flawlessly at the Mongolian Embassy, so you can travel with confidence.

Which visa types are available for Mongolia?

The single entry (1 entry and valid for 90 days) and the double entry (2 entries and valid for 90 days) visa are available for tourists with Dutch nationality.
Business visas come in different variants, which can be requested for single entry (1 entry and valid for 90 days), a double entry (2 entries and valid for 90 days) or a multiple entry (multiple entries and valid for 6 months or 1 year) ).
For a family / friends visit or transfer you must apply for an H visa or a transit visa.

Here too, Traveldocs can assist you. Because the applications have to be processed at the Mongolian embassy in Brussels, we can take a lot of effort and time out of your hands by taking care of the application completely for you and both delivering and collecting the passport at the Brussels embassy.

The purpose of your trip determines the type of visa you need to apply for. If you are unsure which visa is most applicable to your situation, do not hesitate to contact us! Our employees can advise you on this.

How long am I allowed to stay in Mongolia?

Regardless of the destination and type of visa you apply for, you can stay in Mongolia for a maximum of 30 days at a time.

Do children have to obtain their own Mongolian visa?

Yes, anyone traveling, regardless of age, must be able to present a visa when entering Mongolia. This means that everyone should therefore also have their own passport (children not included in the passport of a parent / guardian), which will contain the visa.

Do I have to travel on the date stated on the application?

No, you do not have to, Note: You may only travel within the validity dates stated on the Mongolia visa. If you have changed your trip and it is no longer within the validity of the visa, you must apply for a new visa.

Why do I have to provide my whole bankstatement as a tourist applicant? (Double entry applicants)

All tourist applicants  wanting to obtain a double entry Mongolia visa have to provide a fully visible copy of their bankstatement from the past 3 months. We know this is a lot of private information which you have to share, but unfortunately this is a hard requirement from the Mongolian embassy to make sure you have sufficient funds in order to maintain your whole stay in Mongolia.

Without these 3 fully visible (without any blackened data) bankstatements it is not possible to apply for a double entry visa as a tourist.

Traveldocs can assure you that these information will stay highly confident and secure, while in our possession. We will never show or sell your documents to third parties who are not involved in your visa application. Upon receiving the bankstatement we will only check the necesseties such as the balance, the name of the applicant and the dates.

Changing or cancelling an existing application

What happens if my Mongolian visa application gets rejected?

It is possible that an application for the Mongolia visa will be rejected. Because our specialists manually check all applications for possible errors and omissions, the chance of this is very small. It is also possible that an application will be rejected if, for example, the government of Mongolia suspects that you pose a risk to security and / or public order in Mongolia.
Because it is mandatory to book all flights before applying for the visa, it is wise to take out cancellation insurance that reimburses the costs of these bookings if the application is rejected. Traveldocs is also not liable for the costs incurred.

I made an error on my application and/or documents. Can I correct this?

In this case, please contact us as soon as possible to indicate what is not in order. Whether your visa application can still be corrected depends on the nature of the error and the status of your application. If we have not delivered your application to the embassy yet, it is possible to make changes. If your applicaiton is already in the hands of the embassy, there is nothing we can do. You must obtain a new visa with the proper information and cancel the existing one. It is not possible to get a refund from the embassy nor Traveldocs if an application gets rejected due to the cause of a mistake or untruthful information made/given in the application and/or documents.

Is it possible to cancel my application?

After receiving your passport and other documents, we will process your application. From that moment on, cancellation of the application is no longer possible. If you want to cancel your application before you have submitted your passport and documents, please contact us by phone or e-mail.
