Last Americans Rush to North Korea Ahead of Travel Ban - CNN

Excerpt from CNN

A looming US travel ban has prompted some daring American globetrotters to fast-track their vacations to North Korea.

Beginning September 1, United States passports will be invalid for travel to the hermit kingdom."With the upcoming travel ban I felt like it was now or never," said Virginia resident Nicholas Burkhead, who lamented that he had run out of time to learn Korean before the travel ban.

For Burkhead and others like him, the threat of arrest and imprisonment in the totalitarian state is seemingly not a deterrent, nor is the looming threat that Pyongyang could become the staging ground for a nuclear war.As the United States and South Korea conducted their annual joint military exercises on Friday, Pyongyang fired three short-range ballistic missiles into the sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan. Two missiles flew successfully while a third exploded moments after launch.The US ban was issued a month after the mysterious death of Otto Warmbier, a 22-year-old college student from Ohio who was imprisoned for nearly a year and a half, and returned to his parents in a coma from which he never woke up.There may be exceptions to the ban, though, at the discretion of the State Department. Journalists are one example."US passports will be invalid for travel to, through and in North Korea, and individuals will be required to obtain a passport with a special validation in order to travel to or within North Korea," said Heather Nauert, a State Department spokeswoman.
