MFA Spokesperson’s Comments on Holiday Tour Packages to North Korea

Closed
by September 3, 2019 General

It has come to our attention that some Singapore-based tour operators are offering holiday tour packages to North Korea. The situation in North Korea remains unpredictable. Singaporeans who visit North Korea should be aware of the risks of inadvertently violating the relevant United Nations Security Council (UNSC) sanctions and Singapore’s corresponding laws, which remain in place. For more information on the relevant UNSC sanctions and Singapore’s laws, please refer to the following websites:

Relevant UNSC Sanctions: https://www.un.org/securitycouncil/sanctions/1718

Singapore’s Regulation of Imports and Exports Regulations (RIER): https://sso.agc.gov.sg/SL/RIEA1995-RG1?DocDate=20171107

Singapore’s UN (Sanctions � Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) Regulations:https://sso.agc.gov.sg/SL/UNA2001-S570-2010

Singaporeans should also note that Singapore has no diplomatic representation in North Korea, which constrains our ability to extend consular assistance to Singaporeans who travel there. Singaporeans in need of advice or urgent consular assistance may contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Duty Office at:
