ULAN-BATOR, November 14. /TASS/. The Russian-Mongolian agreement on easing visa requirements entered into force from Friday.
Vladimir Goryachev, the counselor of the Russian embassy in Mongolia, told TASS that Russians will now be able to stay in Mongolia, and Mongolians in Russia, for 30 days without visas.
The counselor said the overall duration of stay should not exceed 90 days over six months.
“Persons who plan to stay over 30 days, as well as persons who go to study, work or engage in commercial activity, should get visas,” Goryachev said.
“There is no talk of a full cancelation of the visa regime, but this simplification is rather significant and it makes trips substantially easier for citizens who intend to maintain business, economic, cultural and kin relations,” he said.
The agreement on terms of mutual trips by citizens was signed September 3, 2014 in the presence of Russian and Mongolian presidents Vladimir Putin and Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj.
According to Goryachev, over 15,000 Russians visited Mongolia and some 18,000 Mongolians visited the Russian Federation last year.
