Visiting a North Korean Embassy

If you have a North Korean embassy in your country, you can go to the embassy to pick up your North Korean visa. 

This is suitable for those that wish to have the DPRK visa inside their passport.

Otherwise, the North Korean visa is issued on a separate piece of paper and you will not get a passport stamp entering or exiting North Korea - unless you visit Rason Special Economic Zone in the North East of North Korea. 

If you wish to do this, you should inform your travel company as they will still need to apply for the visa on your behalf. 

It is subject to costs at each individual embassy how much you will have to pay for the North Korean visa fee.

This small quaint North Korean Embassy is located in the suburbs of London in a typical British red-brick style house. 

Just like any other house - except for the flagpole which sometimes has the North Korean flag flying. 

North Koreans and British people live next to each other in harmony, with the neighbours often discussing their unusual next-door neighbours in the media.

The North Korean Embassy in Germany is based in Berlin.

The North Korean embassy has been here since 1990, but it recently came under the spotlight for having to close down the hostel that runs in one of the buildings in the North Korean embassy area. 

It was recently ruled by the court (Jan 2020) that the hostel is a breach of sanctions and therefore must shut down.
