For visitors with a Mongolian consulate in their country it is compulsory to apply for a visa in advance. In the case of visa on arrival, you (or your local sponsor) must have already submitted a request to the Mongolian Immigration Authority and they have confirmed that you can obtain a visa on arrival at Chinggis Khaan International Airport before you leave. You must have with you the complete visa application, a passport that is valid for at least six months upon arrival, hotel confirmation, a passport photo, and a return/onward ticket. The fee is US$30 or 108,000 Mongolian tögrög.

Obtaining visas for China and Russia in Mongolia: you are advised to arrange for China and/or Russia visas before your travel to Mongolia as obtaining visas for China and Russia can be difficult once you are there.
