In relation to the prevention of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Government of Mongolia is taking the following measures:
- The entry of foreign, third country citizens and stateless persons is prohibited, from 11 - 31 March, 2020;
- All international passenger air traffic and train movements are cancelled, from 10 - 28 March, 2020;
- National bus, air and rail transport are all operating normally;
- All borders remain open for the flow of goods and truck drivers.
Following its 12th meeting on 17 March 2020, the State Emergency Commission of Mongolia has introduced additional measures, which state that all foreign trucks with goods arriving at the border crossing point of Altanbulag are subject to disinfection, which will be organised on the spot by the authorities. Trucks will then be escorted by the police to the customs control zone in Ulaanbaatar, in order to perform the customs clearance formalities and to enable the delivery of goods to the consignee. Upon completion of these procedures, foreign trucks are requested to return immediately to the border crossing point of Altanbulag, and then exit the country. Please note that the new requirements are applicable to all foreign goods transport operators and trucks.
