You must have with you the complete visa application, a passport that is valid for at least six months upon arrival, hotel confirmation, a passport photo, and a return/onward ticket. The fee is US$30 or 108,000 Mongolian tögrög.

British passport holders: As of 1 May 2019, your sponsors in Mongolia can request entry permissions online for your visa on arrival. This is for single or multiple-entry visas for tourism and business categories only.

Obtaining China and Russia in Mongolia: you are advised to arrange for China and/or Russia visas before your travel to Mongolia as obtaining visas for China and Russia can be difficult once you are there.
