U.S. State Department confirms travel ban to North Korea

The ban will come into force 30 days after its publication in the Federal Register next week

The U.S. State Department on Friday said U.S. citizens would be subject to a geographic travel restriction, barring them from visiting North Korea, citing the risk of long-term imprisonment.

The news follows similar reports from Friday, when several travel companies which conduct tours to the DPRK said the ban would be in effect from July 27.
