Singaporeans no longer need to have a visa to travel to Mongolia if their stay there is not more than 30 days.

Starting from today (June 8), the Government of Mongolia is waiving the visa requirement for Singaporeans following an agreement sealed after the visit of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to Mongolia in July 2016, said a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

It said: "The exemption of visa requirements will facilitate greater tourism and business exchanges, and strengthen the friendly relations between Singapore and Mongolia."

The latest news certainly adds another benefit for holders of the Singapore passport, which is now widely regarded as the most desirable in the world for international travel.
