North Korea: Travel Restrictions May Be Easing

Although not exactly welcoming visitors with open arms, the government may be relaxing some of its tourism restrictions, making it easier for foreigners to visit. Radio Free Asia reports that in recent months, immigration and tourism officials seem to be approving tourist visas within days instead of weeks, easing strict policies against tour photography, and conducting less detailed immigration screenings. Also, the security officers who formerly rode on tour buses to keep an eye on visitors have been notably absent. A boom in Chinese tourists to North Korea may have prompted the shift, as their numbers continue to increase.
