Mongolia

Mongolia

Surrounded by mountains, Mongolia is the world’s most sparsely populated country, with a population of 3 million people spread over an area the size of Queensland.  Winter can see temperatures drop to minus 40 degrees Celsius, but summer can be quite hot.

Mongolia is a democracy with one of the fastest growing economies in the world, thanks to a strong mining sector. The poverty rate is decreasing rapidly, but one quarter of people are still living below the poverty line.

Australia’s aid program aims to build human resource capacity in the public and private sectors, and support an open and well-managed economy.

AVID priorities

  • Inclusive development

  • Vocational and higher education

  • Mining

“Mongolia is a fascinating country to live in. There is a rich cultural heritage and enormous pride in the country’s past. The countryside has a rugged beauty, and the capital, Ulaanbaatar, reflects the country’s soviet past and the modern development of the country since 1990. I am very excited to be working as the In-Country Manager here. I have a huge respect for the volunteers that come to Mongolia and I am always impressed with the enthusiasm, experience and technical knowledge that the volunteers bring to the country.”

– Mongolia In-Country Manager, Paul Terry

TIP

Mongolia will only grant dependant visas to married partners of the opposite sex and children. De facto partners (opposite- or same-sex) will need to apply for a short-term tourist visa or secure their own employment visa or volunteer assignment.
