A ban on tourist travel to North Korea is anticipated to be announced by the U.S. government next Thursday, according to Washington Free Beacon.

The ban will reportedly take effect exactly 30 days from the announcement, in late August.

Check it out:

Koryo Tours and Young Pioneer Tours, both based in China, said the Swedish Embassy in Pyongyang contacted them by phone to notify them of the United States’ decision. The Swedish Embassy handles all U.S. diplomatic affairs in North Korea.

If an American citizen violates the ban, it will result in the U.S. invalidating their passport.

It is unclear whether the ban would also apply to educational and humanitarian work in North Korea.

The ban comes roughly a month after American student Otto Warmbier was returned to U.S. soil in a comatose state following an 18-month detainment in North Korea.

Young Pioneer, the tour group that Warmbier traveled to North Korea with, has since stopped issuing tours to North Korea for Americans.

There are currently three other Americans being detained in North Korea, but none of them traveled to the country as tourists.
