On February 14, 2022, Prime Minister L.Oyun-Erdene announced that the Cabinet approved a resolution on lifting the heightened state of readiness and downgrading the level of restrictions from ‘Orange’ to ‘Yellow’. With the updates that were made to COVID-19 temporary regulations in January this year, no restrictions will be imposed on business operations.
Currently, 92 percent of the country’s eligible population has been fully vaccinated, while 52 percent have received a booster shot of COVID-19 vaccines. 90 thousand citizens have also been involved in their fourth shot so far. Thus, based on the risk assessment that was carried out on infection and protection, the Cabinet made the decision to ease pandemic restrictions, noted the Prime Minister during the press conference.
He then specifically noted that with this decision, Mongolia fully opens its borders to international travel. In other words, aside from the advisory being issued for wearing face masks, practicing social distancing, hand sanitizing, and being actively involved in COVID-19 vaccinations, all prior restrictions imposed in connection with the pandemic situation are being lifted.
The country has now become open to all tourists and investors who are fully vaccinated, “The government, administrative bodies, private entities, and tourism companies of Mongolia will put efforts into creating the necessary conditions to ensure safety and provide smooth services for all those arriving in the country for business and tourism purposes,” he said.
Welcome to Mongolia!
