South Korean tourists now can enjoy travelling in Mongolia without a visa for up to 90 days until the end of 2024 after the visa-free regime comes into force on June 1, 2022.
The decision is part of the government’s efforts to revive the pandemic-hit tourism sector and vitalize the economy by attracting more foreign tourists.
Mongolia received a total of around 577,300 foreign tourists in 2019, hitting an all-time high, according to the Mongolian Ministry of Environment and Tourism. The Asian country aims to attract the same number of foreign tourists in 2022.
It is estimated that at least 577,000 South Korean tourists will visit Mongolia in the next three years thanks to the visa-free regime.
