During his meeting with representatives of tourism industry last week, the Prime Minister undertook to make every effort so that the industry operates normally. The Deputy Prime Minister underlined that the border will reopen by May 1 as long as the vaccination program speeds up and businesses and public sector organizations stick to COVID-19 control measures. Emphasizing that the working group, which was set up by the State Emergency Commission to ensure the readiness of border checkpoints, worked at Altanbulag and Zamyn-Uud border checkpoints and western and eastern border areas to improve disinfection practices, the Deputy PM said all necessary preparations are underway to reopen the border when there are no risks.

Deputy PM S.Amarsaikhan also noted that the State Emergency Commission, Ministries, and relevant departments should further intensify their efforts as per the Cabinet’s instruction to reopen the border from May 1.
