The Embassy’s Consular Section is currently registering American citizens for departure on those flights.  Since future flights are not confirmed or guaranteed to operate you are strongly encouraged to depart on this flight if you wish to depart Mongolia.

To request a reservation on the flight please email the names and contact details of all travelers to before 12:00 p.m. on Friday, June 12, 2020.  Please, attach a picture of the biographic information page of your passport and those of all the members of your traveling party to your email.

If you have previously expressed interest in departing, the Embassy will contact you to confirm your reservation. 

The Embassy does not yet know the price of tickets.  You will be required to pay MIAT Mongolian Airlines directly for your travel.  Though the Embassy does not endorse the services of MIAT Mongolian Airlines, it is recommended that you book your onward travel to the United States at the same time you pay for your flight from Mongolia.  Doing so will ensure that you do not risk quarantine at your transfer point.

If you require financial assistance to pay for your travel to the United States, please clearly indicate this in your email.  The Embassy is able to provide such assistance and your timely request will ensure that you receive the funds needed to return home.

Please continue to check the CDC’s COVID-19-specific website and the page for international travelers in order to stay updated on relevant regulations and rule changes for travel:

In the case of an emergency, please contact the U.S. Embassy at +976 7007-6001 or via email at during business hours.  After normal business hours you may call +976 7007 6066.
