What is the medical care in Mongolia?
If you have any particular medical problem please consult with your doctor before start your travel. This also applies to your own personal first aid kit. Trips will have a basic first-aid kit but it will not contain any prescription drugs. There are limited medical supplies in Mongolia and they are mostly found in the capital. You will not be able to purchase them in the countryside when on the trip. Most of the Mongolian hospitals are very short of most medical supplies, including basic care items, drugs and spare parts for medical equipment. Doctors and hospitals expect immediate cash payment for health services. You have to obtain health insurance coverage including for evacuation and to take with you any regular medication.
What currency is used in Mongolia?
The official monetary unit is the „togrog“, however, US dollars and Euros are readily accepted in most stores. Please ask your bank to provide dollar currency dated 1996 or later, as currency dated earlier may be rejected by currency exchange places. Most hotels, restaurants and tourist shops now accept international credit cards. Local shops and markets accept only togrogs. US dollars can be changed at the airport and railway station on arrival, at the hotel receptions or at the banks.
