The German Embassy in Ulaanbaatar represents 15 countries including Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Sweden, Slovenia, and Spain in Mongolia for Schengen Short Term Visa. From now on, the VFS Global will be in charge of the short term visa application at the Embassy.
