Israeli tourists are now welcomed to North Korea

Published on : Tuesday, February 14, 2017

Israeli touristsRimon Tours group, An Israeli Tourism Company recently received an exclusive franchise for issuing official tourist visas for North Korea. It’s quite a unique incident as very few Israelis have visited Korea till now. This spring and summer, Tarbutu, a subsidiary group of Rimon Tours will visit this apparently closed nation.

As quote by The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, “There is no travel warning for North Korea, and no specific ban on traveling there. We of course recommend extreme caution, since there are no diplomatic relations with North Korea, but it is not classified as an enemy country.”

In April-May 2017 Tarbutu will have four organized tours of North Korea as the company has signed an exclusive cooperation agreement with North Korea.

To quote Haim Peres, Tarbutu program manager, ‘’ North Korea is without question one of the most fascinating countries in the world today. It is a closed country cut off from the world, including its neighbors. More is unknown than known about the country.”

So far only 100 Israelis have visited North Korea in organized tours as expressed by the figures from Tarbutu. Israelis were allowed tourist visas for North Korean only through various parties in China. Now, KISTC, the North Korean national travel agency, is accepting tourist visas for Israelis.
