Mongolian nationality law
|Mongolia Citizenship Act|
|Parliament of Mongolia|
|An Act relating to Mongolian citizenship|
|Enacted by||Government of Mongolia|
|Status: Current legislation|
If both of the parents of a child are Mongolian - irrespective of where the child is born - then the child is automatically Mongolian. A child born to one Mongolian parent inside of Mongolia is also considered Mongolian.
A child who is within the territory of Mongolia whose parents are not identified is a Mongolian citizen.
Foreigners may apply for citizenship through the President's office as well, or through a Mongolian embassy. One must renounce their former nationalities in order to acquire Mongolian.
Before 1992, in the Mongolian People's Republic, citizenship by birth was determined by the nationality of the parents. Any child born anywhere with at least one parent with Mongolian citizenship is also a citizen of Mongolia. Before the fall of the Soviet Union, dual citizenship between the two countries was accepted. The statute was agreed upon by the Mongolian Council of Ministers on 30 December 1974, and detailed further by an Instruction on the Fulfillment of the Statute confirmed on 11 April 1975.
