Estonia opens its first honorary consulate in Mongolia ({{commentsTotal}})


Estonia has opened its first honorary consulate in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The Estonian honorary consul is Khulan Lkhagvasuren, whose consular territory covers all of Mongolia.

According to Foreign Ministry's Undersecretary for European and Transatlantic Relations Mart Laanemäe, Estonian-Mongolian relations are good, yet there is the potential to develop relations in all areas. Laanemäe expressed hope that above all, the opening of the consulate will help strengthen both political and economic ties between Estonia and Mongolia.

Estonian Ambassador to Mongolia Toomas Lukk added that Mongolia has expressed interest in Estonia’s developments and experience. “Mongolia is particularly interested in our e-government solutions,” Lukk specified.

Since last year, Estonian citizens can travel to Mongolia visa-free as tourists or for business purposes and stay there without a visa for up to thirty consecutive days. The Mongolian government initially decided to introduce a unilateral visa-free regime until the end of 2015.

The Estonian Honorary Consulate is located at Sukhbaatar district in Ulaanbaatar.
