British Ambassador to Mongolia
Britain was the first western country to establish diplomatic relations with Mongolia in 1963. Events will be held throughout 2013 to mark the 50th Anniversary.
We report to the British government on political developments in Mongolia. We work closely with the Mongolian government and with political parties inside and outside government, as well as making contacts with a wide range of other people in many different walks of life. We also arrange high-level meetings between Britain and Mongolia.
We tell people in Mongolia about British policies and values, providing information to journalists, teachers, students and others who are interested in Britain. We also provide consular services and assistance for British citizens, unrepresented Commonwealth citizens and some EU nationals, and process visa applications from Mongolians and others who need them to travel to the UK.
