PROCEDURES FOR IMMIGRATION SERVICES AND VISA

All international students must report your arrival to the Mongolian Immigration Office. The whole procedure to obtain your residence permit might take a couple of weeks. We strongly advise you not to postpone this administrative step.

In order to enter Mongolia as a student or researcher, you should follow the next steps:

  1. Prior to your arrival in Mongolia, you should apply for “S” visa. You can take this as your permission or invitation to enter Mongolia. If you enter Mongolia with other type of visa, it is impossible to change it in Mongolia, which means you have to return to your homeland to get a valid visa to pursue studies.
  2. After arriving in Mongolia you will need to get the permission to reside as a student or researcher.
  • Temporary registration at immigration within 3 working days upon arrival
  • Application for residence permit within 21 days upon arrival
