We're 2 Dutch passport holders an we tried obtaining a tourist visa in UB but this is not possible (anymore). We even showed the story of Loes on this forum to the consul and he was a bit confused. But in the end we could really only apply for a transit visa. You'll be able to apply for a tourist visa when you've got a residence permit for Mongolia.

Transit visa was nice and quick, but we only received 4 days to Kazakhstan. The other way around (Almaty-UB) we received 10 days.

Hi Hester, that is a shame. Just like Loes, we got it there as well, a bit more than one year ago.
It seems like the text has changed a bit on the website, not including Netherlands in the list of countries who don't need a residence permit.
See: https://mongolia.mid.ru/en_GB/consular

The Transit visa is normally depending on the distance that needs to be travelled. You can do it in 4 days, but if you wanted to enter Kazakhstan further to the west, it might not be enough.

At the Mongolia Russia border, you can just sleep there, right at the border. We did that to (after entering late).
For you that would mean entering early in the morning, so you get a whole day of travelling.

Good luck.

Hey guys, we (Italian citizens) got the Russian visa in Ulaanbaatar in November 2019 and it was extremely easy and straightforward. If you want to have a bit more of information (cost, timetables, etc), have a look at our article:

Hi there, was wondering if you applied for the Transit visa at home or on the road? Looking to see if it is possible to obtain one on the road if anyone has heard of that ever happening? Thanks!

Can someone confirm if it really isn't possible anymore for people from nations that aren't of the long-term registration list (in my case the Netherlands) to get a visa in Ulan Bator?

If you are still at home, you can look into getting a Business visa, which lasts longer and has more entries, depending on type.
