Train schedule for private travelers

 
Private travelers have the option of entering and/or leaving North Korea by train from/to Beijing or Dandong. Train tickets for the train to North Korea can be handed over only in China. We are working closely with a Chinese courier service that will ensure to deliver the necessary documents to your hotel on the night before your departure. It is compulsory that you include at least one night’s accommodation at the departure point of the train in Beijing or Dandong. As security checks at the train stations are similar to those at airports, we recommend you arrive at least 60 minutes prior to the official departure time of your train at the respective station. On this page you will find an overview of all train connections, which are available for private travelers on the respective days.
