North Korea travel update: Monday 12th January 2015

We have been working closely with our partners in North Korea in regards to when the current Ebola travel restriction will be lifted, and tourism to the DPRK will resume as normal. We are expecting the borders to reopen very soon within the coming weeks.

As of Friday the 24th of October 2014, tourists from any countries, regardless of where they have recently visited, are temporarily suspended from entering North Korea as a strict measure of protection against the recent Ebola outbreak. We will continue to take new bookings as usual and we are confident that this is a temporary ban to give the DPRK authorities a chance to implement screening measures to protect against the introduction of Ebola in the DPRK.

We will update news on our homepage, Facebook and Twitter as soon as we receive any new information.
