On March 27, 2020, the Mongolian government informed the U.S. Embassy in Ulaanbaatar that it intends to offer a limited number of seats on an upcoming flight arranged for foreign citizens wishing to depart Mongolia. 

MIAT Mongolian Airlines will operate one flight to Tokyo, Japan (Narita International Airport) on Wednesday, April 1. The exact time of departure is not yet available, nor are exact ticket prices.
