Mongolia Visa Extension
If you have come into the country on a 30 day tourist visa, its possible to extend for another 30 days. You can do this at the Office of Immigration (INFC) in Ulaanbaatar, which is down by Peace Bridge (look in the LP). Extensions cost around $2 a day. You can get the extension about a week before your visa expires, but only if you already registered at the INFC office when you arrived.
If you have come in on a US passport and stayed your 90 days you can’t extend the visa (because you never got a visa!). However, if you buy an exit visa (for $100) you can stay an extra 10 days, which gives you 100 days in the country for $100.
If you get a job in UB, like teaching English, your employer will get you a long term registration. Otherwise, you could pop down to Erlian (on the Chinese border) and come straight back, but this involves a lot of work as its a two day train trip and you’ll need to buy a Chinese visa.
