US Extends Ban on Americans Traveling to North Korea | Travel Pulse

The ban, initially imposed in 2017 due to the death of an American student Otto Warmbier and renewed in 2018, has been extended for another year. Officials believe there are serious risks for American citizens traveling to North Korea, including arrest and long-term detention.  The ban was also instituted after diplomatic efforts between the US and North Korea were stalled.

U.S. aid workers and journalists are still permitted to obtain a special validation passport that allows them to visit North Korea one time.
