Moving to Mongolia

By Betsy Burlingame

Last updated on Jun 09, 2023

Summary: Expats and digital nomads move to Mongolia for its unique culture, stunning landscapes, and low cost of living. The most popular cities for expats and digital nomads in Mongolia are Ulaanbaatar, Erdenet, and Darkhan. People looking for a place to live in Mongolia can search online for rental listings, contact real estate agents, or look for postings on expat forums. Additionally, many expats and digital nomads find housing through word of mouth from other expats and digital nomads already living in Mongolia.

What do I need to know before moving to Mongolia?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Mongolia, they said:

"Mongolia is a landlocked country located in Central Asia, bordered by Russia and China. The climate in Mongolia is continental, with cold winters and hot summers. The official language is Mongolian, but English is widely spoken in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar. Expats should be aware that the cost of living in Mongolia is relatively low, but the infrastructure is not as developed as in other countries. It is important to research the local culture and customs before moving to Mongolia, as there are many cultural differences that may take some getting used to. Additionally, expats should make sure to obtain the necessary visas and permits before arriving in the country," replied a member in Mongolia.
