We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Mongolia. The British Embassy in Ulaanbaatar provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Mongolia.

In 1963 Britain became the first western country to establish diplomatic relations with Mongolia. We actively promote British policies, values and investment opportunities for both British and Mongolian companies in the UK and Mongolia respectively. To achieve this we work closely with the Mongolian government and private contacts from a wide range of sectors, including construction, mining, education and green growth industries.

We report to the British government on political developments in Mongolia and help to arrange high-level meetings between the UK and Mongolia. We also provide consular services and assistance for British citizens, unrepresented Commonwealth citizens and some EU nationals.
