Mutual visa facility discussed with the South Korean Ambassador

Minister Ts.Munkh-Orgil meets with Ambassador Oh Song

On April 10, Foreign Affairs Minister Ts.Munkh-Orgil met with Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Mongolia Oh Song to discuss a South Korean visa facility for Mongolian applicants.

After South Korea launched a new border inspection system on April 1, visa requirements changed for Mongolians who were previously eligible to enter the Republic of Korea without a visa.

Minister Ts.MunkhOrgil and Ambassador Oh agreed that when holders of regular Mongolian and South Korean passports have visited Mongolia and South Korea four times or more within two years, or after they have visited at least ten times, they should be eligible to apply for a
30-day multiple entry visa that remains valid for five years.

The sides also agreed to work together on the implementation of an agreement signed by the governments of the two countries to streamline the visa process for Mongolian and South Korean visa applicants, to review the terms of multiple entry visas, and to research carrying out a mutual visa facility.
