The cabinet meeting held on Saturday featured the topic of visa related issues specifically those regarding Poland, Serbia and Columbia.
Currently Mongolia has agreements with 23 countries that allow travel reciprocally without a visa for both diplomatic and official passport holders. Ordinary passport holders are able to travel to 16 of these countries without visas.
The proposal of traveling to Serbia without a visa for 90 days within 6 months was voted favorably at the Cabinet meeting. The cabinet members believe such a proposal to ease visa requirements is a positive step to encourage bilateral relations with Serbia for tourism and to support business and enterprises of both countries since establishing diplomatic relations between Mongolia and the former Yugoslavia.
During the cabinet meeting the agreement on mutual visa liberalization for holders of diplomatic and official passports between nationals of Mongolia and Columbia, signed at the 68th UN Assembly last September, was approved.
According to the agreement, official and diplomatic passport holders of both nationals will be able to travel to the other country for up to 30 days without a visa.
There were also amendments into the protocol for the agreement on the mutual visa liberalization for holders of diplomatic and official passport holders between the Governments of Mongolia and Poland.
The agreement was signed between Mongolia and Poland in June 2011.
Some problems had arisen as an official passport is translated into English as a “service passport” meaning some official passport holders faced misunderstandings at Polish Customs.
Additional clarifications into the agreement were needed to specify the type of passport the agreement referred to.
