or bringing religious items into the country and preferably do not do so at all. Connect For medical emergencies dial 02 382 7688 (Pyongyang number) Phones As of January 2013, you are allowed to carry a mobile phone from outside the country into North Korea. You will not be able to use your current SIM card in North Korea, however. The only network you are allowed to connect to is the local network, Koryolink, via one of their SIM cards. Your phone must be a 3G WCDMA phone which can connect to the 2100MHz 3G frequency band. A 3G mobile phone network (Koryolink) was introduced in Pyongyang in 2008 and now covers the 42 largest cities. It is widely used by locals who can afford it and by long-staying foreigners who file an application. SIM cards and phones can be purchased at the International Communication Center, No.2 Pothonggang-dong in Pothonggang District, opposite the Pyongyang Indoor Stadium, as well as at Pyongyang airport and some hotels. As of 25 Feb 2013, 3G mobile internet via Koryolink is available to foreigners, although pricing is currently unknown. Bear in mind that these SIM cards will only let you call internationally and to a very small number of internationally-enabled phones in North Korea. There are three plans you can choose from for your SIM card: #Purchase a prepaid SIM card for €50. This gives you the SIM card to keep indefinitely for return visits, and includes a small amount (less than €30) of calling credit. #Rent a prepaid SIM card for two weeks for €50. This includes €30 of calling credit. #Rent a prepaid SIM card for one month for €75. This includes €55 of calling credit. Calling rates are as follows: *China and South-East Asia: €1.43 per minute. *Russia: €0.68 per minute. *France and Switzerland: €0.38 per minute. *U.K. and Germany: €1.58 per minute. International calling is generally possible via landlines in hotels, though it is expensive (€2 per minute as of Feb 2012) and all calls are likely recorded and monitored. Local calls need elusive 10 chon coins when calling from call boxes, but can also be made from hotels and post offices. Internet Internet facilities are limited, as few locals have permission to use it. Most of the larger hotels have Internet access available, but this needs to be applied for some days in advance. Advise your tour operator or inviting party of your requirements well ahead of time so that access permission can be arranged. There are no public internet cafés or business centres with web access in the hotels. Mobile internet is available via Koryolink's 3G network (see above) using a local SIM card, but details about this are currently scarce. Also note that even if you have Internet access, your traffic may be monitored, so be careful of what you type in your email and be aware that access to many websites that people outside of North Korea normally use is blocked by a firewall. Cope There is a growing diplomatic presence of foreign embassies in North Korea's capital city of Pyongyang (Pyongyang#Embassies). It is worth knowing beforehand which country can assist you in case of an emergency, such as a medical condition or a police incident.
