Australian Embassy
Mongolia

Visa

The Australian Embassy in Mongolia does not issue Australian visas or approve Australian citizenship.

The Department of Home Affairs is responsible for managing Australian visa and citizenship matters. 

For information about Australian visas and Citizenship, including visa application forms, please visit the Department of Home Affairs website at: http://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/

The Department of Home Affairs encourages clients to lodge their application online using ImmiAccount, where available, as this will result in a more efficient and streamlined service.  Clients who lodge online are not required to send in their original passport with their application.

The Australian Government does not issue visa labels in passports.

Information about lodging an application and using other ImmiAccount services (including quick reference guides) is available on the Department of Home Affairs website at https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa/immi.

To assist applicants in planning travel, the Department of Home Affairs publishes global processing times on the Department’s website at https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/about/access-accountability/service-standards/global-visa-citizenship-processing-times.

Processing times are updated monthly and provide an indication of the time taken for an application to be finalised. Notwithstanding these indicative processing times, it is important for applicants to note that processing times are affected by changes in application volumes, seasonal peaks and the individual circumstances of the applicant. 


The Department of Home Affairs encourages clients to lodge their application well in advance of their intended travel date and by considering the global processing times and pandemic situation.

The Department of Home Affairs has changed the way they communicate with clients and are directing them to their website and online services, this includes for the Mongolian student and visitor visas.  Migration agents and applicants can direct any queries using the following web form:  https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/about/corporate/information/forms/online/australian-immigration-enquiry  China should be selected as the overseas post.

  • Subclass 600 Visitor visas
  • Subclass 500 Student visas
  • Subclass 590 Student Guardian visas
