There are two choices with regards to your visa collection:
A: The easiest and recommended option is to collect the visa from our Beijing representative at the pre tour meeting in Beijing- please note we do not require your passport at any time, the visa is issued on separate paper and your passport is not marked in any way – the cost for this service is €50;
B: Alternatively you can arrange to collect your in-passport visa from the local DPRK Embassy in your home country (please contact us for more details on pricing and a list of DPRK diplomatic missions).
International Train / Flight Tickets
If travelling by Air Koryo, your e-tickets will be sent in advance by email;
If travelling by train your tickets will be given to you in Beijing prior to departure at the pre-tour meeting.
A booking fee is payable via international bank transfer at the time of booking (€200-400, depending on tour length);
The remaining tour balance is settled with the JTS representative at the pre-tour meeting in Beijing in either US Dollar, Chinese Yuan, or Euro cash. Please ensure you bring the balance in a sealed envelope with your name clearly visible.
Pre Tour Meeting
Regardless of which type of tour you take, all customers attend a pre-tour meeting in Beijing prior to departure. For group tour customers, this usually takes place on the evening prior to the start of the tour and also includes a complimentary welcome meal where you can meet your fellow travellers. For private tour customers, you will meet our KITC Beijing Partner at a mutually agreed place and time.
At the pre-tour meeting, we will recap on the do’s and don’ts of the tour, run through the itinerary and answer any last minute questions you may have.
Chinese Visa Requirements
Kindly note that JTS is not responsible for customers’ Chinese visa requirements and this is to be arranged separately by the customer. We can provide an official KITC Invitation Letter for the purposes of your Chinese Tourist Visa application. Please inform us 3-5 business days in advance of your Chinese visa appointment.
