Got mail?

The ACMS provides visiting scholars who are ACMS members personal mailboxes in the center upon request. If you intend to receive mail while in Mongolia, please contact the ACMS about setting up a personal mailbox. Why do this? Well, for three reasons.
  • Mongolia does not have residential delivery services.
  • PO Boxes cost about $20 per year (same as ACMS membership).
  • It takes a lot of time to collect boxes from the post office due to the elaborate administrative system at work there.
The mail is collected and sorted every Friday morning. Most packages sent to Mongolia receive a 1,200₮ customs tariff. Therefore, don't forget to bring a little cash each time you check your mailbox just in case you need to reimburse the ACMS. For more information about getting a mailbox, please contact info@mongoliacenter.org.
