As is standard practice with legitimate tour operators and in particular due to the isolation of the country Koryo Tours insist that tourists travelling to DPRK have full medical insurance. We will not take you into the country without this so please read the following:
Koryo Tours cannot be held responsible for any mishap to yourself or your property and in particular any consequence or effects of flight/train cancellation/delay, robbery, sickness, Government intervention or other such happenings.
You are advised to insure yourself against any possible risk that may occur and in particular to ensure that sufficient insurance has been obtained in respect of any dependant relatives. It is your responsibility to be covered by insurance which must include medical expenses and the cost of repatriation should you become too ill to continue.
Any claims must be directed to your insurers. We will require you to sign a form stating that you have adequate insurance coverage and that Koryo will not be held liable for any medical expenses you may incur.
If you have a medical condition which may affect your health or safety in North Korea you must inform us before visa application.
Koryo Tours is pleased to be able to offer comprehensive travel insurance to all our clients at a reasonable rate and through a system that means it is available to purchase as late as one day before the tour.
In cooperation with AXA Insurance Group. We can offer packages for 7 or 12 days (longer on request - maximum 90 days) that will allow all the usual travel fears of what fees could be run-up if you ever needed emergency treatment on a tour, or to medically evacuated to Beijing or beyond for medical care for which unlimited coverage is offered – for a full list of what the policy covers and to what extent please click here.
The prices are listed below, this can be paid in cash at the pre-tour briefing one day before the tour and coverage will take effect from the day of departure to the DPRK. Please email us as far in advance as possible if you would like to take out our insurance policy in order to avoid any problems. If you are between 71 - 80 years old you will need to provide additional information -please contact us for more details.
7 days is the shortest package available but this doesn't only cover you in North Korea, it is good for worldwide coverage with the exception of domestic travel in China. Having an insurance during your travel period can give you a peace of mind and know that in the event of an emergency happening on your travels you will be adequately insured.
