HCMC – Vietnam and Mongolia have signed an agreement to exempt visas for their citizens, a move aimed at enhancing collaboration in trade, tourism, and people-to-people exchanges between the two countries.

The agreement was officially signed during Mongolian President Ukhnaagiin Khurelsukh’s visit to Vietnam from November 1 to 5. Under this agreement, visa exemptions will apply to diplomatic, official and ordinary passports.

This development is particularly significant as, in 2024, the two countries will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties.

During a meeting with the Mongolian President, State President Vo Van Thuong expressed the mutual wish of Vietnam and Mongolia to double bilateral trade to US$200 million in the coming years.

Both countries are committed to furthering two-way trade and promoting trading activities, taking into account the specific needs and requirements of each country.

President Thuong also underscored the importance of Mongolia’s ongoing support for ASEAN’s stance on ensuring maritime and aviation safety and security in the East Sea. This includes the resolution of international disputes through peaceful means and in accordance with international laws, especially the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea adopted in 1982.

In response, President Khurelsukh expressed his hope that his State visit to Vietnam would significantly strengthen the traditional friendship between both countries.

He also emphasized the historic significance of the visa exemption agreement between Vietnam and Mongolia in stimulating bilateral relations, and creating favorable conditions for the citizens of both countries.
