I went to Pyongyang a few years back for a work-related trip; our group had
to jump through all kind of State Department hoops and then had to deal with
PRC visas also (you have to fly into DPRK either from PRC or Russia after
getting an entry visa from the local embassy).  I would imagine tourists
would have an even harder time of it.

Dear all list members,

According to New Korea Tours, Korean American citizens are being allowed to
visit North Korea 'for the the first time ever'.  Please check out the
website  http://www.newkoreatours.com/

I was wondering if such tours had ever occured at this magnitude before, and
whether or not the United States had limited the travel of its' Korean
American citizens.  I believe American citizens have been allowed to visit
under certain circumstances.


Thank you for your help.  I was also wondering if anyone was interested in
taking part in one of these tours this year.
