North Korea - Money & Costs

Money & Costs in North Korea

Currency: North Korean won

It's going to be an expensive trip. Not counting transport to and from North Korea, you'll have to spend between US$100 a day if you're in a large group, to US$250 a day if you're travelling alone. Foreigners must exchange money at hotels. When you get your visa you are usually also given a currency declaration form, and you must fill in another when you leave. The only currencies you can exchange easily are the Euro, British pound, US dollar and Japanese yen.

Although you can usually get a far better black market rate for North Korean won in Chinese cities near the border, forget it. The money will be confiscated and you'll be turned back or arrested.
