The U.S. Mission to Mongolia understands that many visa applicants have paid the visa application processing fee and are still waiting to schedule a visa appointment. We are working diligently to restore all routine visa operations as quickly and safely as possible. In the meantime, rest assured that the U.S. Mission will extend the validity of your payment (known as the MRV fee) until September 30, 2023, to allow all applicants who were unable to schedule a visa appointment as a result of the suspension of routine consular operations an opportunity to schedule and/or attend a visa appointment with the already paid fee.  Please continue to monitor this site for information on when we will return to routine visa operations.


The Nonimmigrant Visa Unit of the Consular Section at U.S. Embassy Ulaanbaatar is offering visa services to students (F-1/M-1), exchange visitors (J-1), and petition-based work visa categories. In anticipation of a resumption of routine visa services, the Consular Section has made available interview appointment slots for tourist visas (B1/B2) starting from January 2022, and expects to open additional appointment slots as resources permit. Visa applicants with a confirmed appointment time are free to reschedule for an earlier appointment slot if one becomes available, although they may only reschedule twice. Visa applicants may visit the following links for information on appointment availability and scheduling of appointments. Please note that appointments may be cancelled and/or rescheduled as the COVID-19 situation changes.
