Prepare for Your Life as an Expat in North Korea

The mysterious land of North Korea is one of the few places left on the planet untouched by mass tourism. The bustling capital city of Pyongyang is the natural first stop for travelers and expats alike, but look beyond the city and you will find an ancient land replete with millennia-old mausoleums and medieval fortifications, all nestled across a sweeping mountainous landscape that offers hints of Korea's rich history. North Korea has had economic difficulty in the past and as a result, the largest proportion of expats living in North Korea reside in Pyongyang as part of aid agencies or belong to the diplomatic corp within foreign embassies. With a population of close to 25 million, North Korea undoubtedly has great potential and provides a challenging and rewarding environment for expats who want to get off the beaten track. InterNations aims to support you, as an expatriate, in getting to know the expat community in North Korea and discovering the North Korean way of life in all its facets, from having the traditional kim chi to celebrating the Arirang mass games.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Canada or Switzerland, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Find New Friends Even before You Start Your Life in North Korea

North Korea can be a daunting place to move to for new expats, but that’s where InterNations can help. InterNations is here to provide you with easy access to a network of expats living and work near you. Our friendly members will guide and help you as you settle in. Membership is by approval only to ensure our community principles of openness and friendliness are displayed at all times. North Korea has some strict laws surrounding free movement and that’s why it's important to seek advice from fellow expats. Furthermore, when it comes to issues like health, visa regulations, local customs and Pyongyang house-hunting, feel free to pose any topic relevant to North Korean life to our members. Meet up with other expats, attend social events and discover your favorite hobby by connecting with our expat community.
