U.S. Citizen Services
Help for American Victims of Crime in Mongolia
Being the victim of a crime in a foreign country can be a devastating and traumatic experience. While no one can undo the emotional trauma, physical injury, or financial loss you may have experienced, the U.S. Embassy in Ulaanbaatar is ready to help. We are very concerned about violent crimes committed against U.S. citizens in Mongolia. We will assist you in managing the practical consequences of being a crime victim and provide you with information about accessing the local criminal justice system, as well as other resources for crime victims abroad and the United States. This office can assist you to find appropriate medical care, contact family or friends on your behalf, and explain how funds can be transferred. We can also help you to better understand the criminal justice system in Mongolia, which is very different from the system in the United States.
The information included in this guide relating to the legal requirements in Mongolia is provided for general information purposes only. The information may not be accurate or relevant to a particular case. Questions involving interpretation of Mongolian laws should be addressed to legal counsel licensed to practice law in Mongolia. The investigation and prosecution of the crime is solely the responsibility of local authorities. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) may assist local authorities in certain cases of kidnapping, hostage-taking and terrorism.
