Continuing our guide to Mongolia visa and work permits, in this article we shall cover foreign investor visas (T visa).
Foreign investor visas (T visa) are issued to individuals, who are foreign investors or chief executive officers of a foreign invested company, or its branch or representative offices. These are valid for either 6 months or 1 year. Unlike multiple-entry B visas, holders of T visas are required to obtain residence permit (residence card) and therefore may stay the full period of their visa.
Like B visas, company inviting a foreign investor (or chief executive officer) must first provide a visa invitation letter. A request must be submitted along with required packet of documents (including a foreign investor card previously obtained from General authority for intellectual property and state registration) to the Immigration Agency. Once Immigration Agency permits to issue a visa, then a visa invitation letter must be forwarded to the embassy or consulate in foreign investor’s country of residence, where he/she applies for T visa. T visas are valid for 183 days upon their issuance until the entry into Mongolia.
Inviting company must register the investor with the Immigration Agency within 7 days and obtain a residence card for the investor within 21 days upon their entry into Mongolia.
In case of need, inviting company may apply for a single exit-entry, two-time exit-entry and multiple exit-entry visas (valid for either 6 months or 1 year) during investor’s stay in Mongolia. T visas may be renewed.
