Will U.S. Citizens Be Banned From Visiting North Korea? These Travel Operators Think So

Will U.S. Citizens Be Banned From Visiting North Korea? These Travel Operators Think Soby

US President Donald Trump has largely put defense at the heart of his campaign and his time as Commander-in-Chief thus far – however, his initial plans for a ban on certain refugees and immigrants approaching the US found itself blocked – and though a temporary lift has been granted pending Supreme Court approval, the concept of the ‘travel ban’ did the President considerable public damage at least in the media. There is, however, alleged movement to prevent US citizens from visiting a certain country in the pipeline – according to two tour operators in North Korea, who are reporting the news ahead of any official US statements.

According to a report filed by the BBC, both Young Pioneer Tours and Koryo Tours – who operate in the reclusive state – have revealed that US citizens face being banned from travelling to North Korea 30 days after a formal announcement on July 27th. Young Pioneer Tours in particular advised that they had received the intel via Swedish Embassy staff, due to a lack of direct communication between North Korea and Washington on such matters. If true, this could mean that US citizens may face passport invalidation should they choose to travel there – a move which comes hot on the heels of what appeared to be continued nuclear testing on behalf of the country’s leader, Kim Jong Un.

Relations between the US and North Korea have been strained for some time – and with China and Russia also involved in attempting to keep matters diplomatic, it seems that Mr Kim’s reclusive country will continue to cause controversy across the West. US Citizens have been advised not to visit North Korea following continued testing and rhetoric from Mr Kim that has been decried outside of the country – and following the detaining of several Western visitors on a number of grounds. A move by the US to officially ban citizen visits to the country will be unprecedented – at present, however, it remains conjecture – as there is yet to be an official announcement made by the White House.

If the rumors are true, however, it could mean that we hear about such a ban officially on July 27th – and that, 30 days from then, all US citizens will be required to avoid the country or risk reprimand. US officials have previously encouraged citizens to refrain from visiting on the grounds of safety – though it will remain to be seen if they enshrine anything legally in the next week.
