Before travelling to North Korea, please draft a will and make funeral plans – US tells citizens
Americans have been told they are on their own if they plan to travel all the way down to North Korea.
The U.S. State Department last week issued a strong warning to citizens planning to travel down to the East Asia country, cautioning that anyone travelling to the Nation which is governing by ‘dangerous’ supreme leader Kim Jong-un should prepare for the possibility of not returning.
“The U.S. government is unable to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in North Korea as it does not have diplomatic or consular relations with North Korea,” the State Department published on its website last week
Those who wish to travel to North Korea must be approved for a special validation, which are handed out on “very limited circumstances.” U.S. travelers given the approval to experience Kim Jong Un’s regime should then prepare for the worst — including drafting a will and making funeral and property arrangements with family and friends.
