    How to book a tour to North Korea

    The following information tells you how to book your tour in North Korea. Please refer to our booking FAQ page here >> for more details


    Decide on which tour to take and make a booking

    Choose one of our group or individual tours to the DPRK. To book a tour hit "book" button.

    Important: By completing our booking form and applying for a visa through us you certify that your personal details are correct and true. The submission of false details would have serious consequences for us as a tour operator as well as for our Korean partners and DPRK Embassy staff. This is a risk not worth taking. Thank you for your understanding


    Upload e-copy of your passport

    Please scan (or take a good quality photo by digital camera/smart phone, max 1 MB for each file) and upload documents via the link you receive in the booking confirmation email.

    1. ID page of your passport (in colour)
    2. Document from your employer/school confirming your job position/faculty (employment/attendance certificate)

    Pay 50% deposit

    We will confirm receipt of the booking form and then send you an invoice. We need 50% deposit to start visa application process for you. The deposit payment should be made within a week via bank transfer to our Euro account in Sweden. All payment transactions in Euro made within European Union, quoted with IBAN numbers are charged like domestic payments.

    Please note, that if you book a tour which starts in less than 45 days then there will be no deposit but instead 100% of the price should be paid.


    Apply for DPRK visa / send us documents for DPRK visa

    One month prior to the departure to North Korea visa application package should be submitted to North Korean embassy (either by Korea Konsult in Stockholm and Beijing, or by yourself in your country of residence). Please refer to the visa support page here for more details

    Meanwhile after 50% deposit confirmation we will submit visa approval request (it is NOT visa application) to the North Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs. If your visa approval request is rejected we get notified within a month. In this case we will refund 100% of your deposit excluding visa fees


    Pay the rest 50% of your tour fee

    One month prior to the departure to the DPRK the rest 50% of the tour fee should be transfered to our account in Sweden


    Receive final confirmation of your tour to North Korea

    Two weeks prior to your departure to the DPRK we will send you final confirmation and pre-tour information with detailed information on tour preparation, including tour voucher (if you need one)


    Receive flight e-ticket

    One week prior to your departure to the DPRK we will send you e-ticket on your flight to Pyongyang and details of your train tickets (if any)
