US sets Sept 1 date for start of North Korea travel ban

AFP

WASHINGTON: The United States on Wednesday officially set a September 1 start date for a ban prohibiting its citizens from traveling to North Korea, reports AFP.

"The Department of State has determined that the serious risk to United States nationals of arrest and long-term detention represents imminent danger to the physical safety of United States nationals traveling to and within the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)," read the restriction as it appeared Wednesday in the US government's Federal Register.

"All United States passports are declared invalid for travel to, in, or through the DPRK unless specially validated for such travel," it added.

An exemption was noted for approved humanitarian travel and for journalists in some circumstances. The ban is to remain in effect for one year, unless it is revoked sooner by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
