Collecting your documents in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea
This page tells you how you can collect your documents after we have decided your UK visa application in the Democratic Republic of Korea.
When your documents and (if your application was successful) your visa are ready for collection, we will contact you by email or phone. You can then collect your documents from our visa application centre. You will need to show your receipt. Documents can be collected from the visa application centre at the British Embassy Pyongyang visa application centre from Monday to Thursday, between 10.00 - 12.00 and 14.00 - 16.00).
If you want us to return any documents to you, you must photocopy them and submit the photocopies with the original papers when you attend your appointment at the visa application centre. We will not return any papers that have not been photocopied.
A nominated person can collect your documents on your behalf. They will need to provide an authorisation letter signed by you, your receipt and proof of their identity.
If you are collecting a visa, you should check, before leaving the Embassy that it:
- contains your correct personal details;
- correctly states the purpose for which you want to come to the UK; and
- is valid for the date when you want to travel.
If you think there is anything wrong with your visa, speak to a member of staff immediately. Alternatively, you should contact the visa application centre. You can find the details on the British Embassy in Pyongyang website.
