I'm currently in Kyrgyzstan, waiting (like so many others), for a visa - for me it's to Kazakhstan. I'll go to Almaty, then up through to Russia (Novosibirsk), across to Irkutsk and down to Mongolia.
However, I need a visa for Mongolia, being a New Zealander citizen. According to:
I have a choice of an embassy/consulate in Almaty or Irkutsk. However, given the problems people have with visas in these countries, I'm wary that one might be more straightforward. Does anyone have any suggestions for how this may be sped up, or whether one is more likely to be easier than the other to get the visa? And by easy, I'd prefer 'fast' :D
