    MEDIUM TRAVEL RISK for Korea, North

Risk Summary

Defer travel to North Korea until further notice as the government has previously restricted the mobility of foreigners in the country during periods of heightened diplomatic tensions. Members planning to travel to the country should obtain a brief prior to travel on the unique circumstances and practical difficulties; travellers should ensure they are visiting with full permission and documentation, and that they understand both the extremely controlled environment that they are entering and extremely strict regulations to which they will be subject. Information security, enforced changes to travel plans and a low likelihood of arbitrary interrogation or detention are the most significant threats to business travellers. Crime is minimal. Tight social control and extreme poverty mean that there is little risk to personnel and assets.

This information is intended as a summary of the travel security environment; however, the risks can change at short notice during a crisis or evolving situation. Please check our travel security alerts to ensure you are informed of the most recent developments.
