washington - The US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has issued a travel ban for North Korea. Travelers are seriously in danger of being arrested. If the decision comes into effect, people with a plain American passport can no longer go to the communist country as a tourist.
Two tour operators offering travel to North Korea had already announced Tillerson's intention earlier this day. People who want to go to North Korea must apply for a special confirmation certificate.
