Getting married in North Korea

Hi all,

We invite all the ones who got married in North Korea or who are about to get married in North Korea to participate in this thread :)

What are the formalities to get married in North Korea? Is it the same for a couple of foreigners of for a mixed couple (between a foreigner and a native of North Korea)?

Are the procedures complicated?

How long does it take to carry out all the formalities?

Thank you in advance for participating,


Sorry but it is forbidden for North Korean to marry a foreigner. I only know 1 case, a man from Singapore who got married 20 years ago...

Thanks for this sharing bnono32!


I've always wanted to get married in North Korea.  That's like my dream honeymoon location.

The best way to get married in North Korea is to mill about near the border and hope you catch the attention of a strapping young lad carrying a Kalashnikov...
