Malaysians banned from going to North Korea

Malaysians banned from going to North Korea”

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs hereby informs the public that all Malaysians are banned from traveling to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea) until further notice", a statement on the ministry's website reads.

Malaysia was among the few countries that were friendly with North Korea until February this year when the communist country's government accused Putrajaya of colluding with its enemies in investigating the death of Kim Jong-nam.

For further inquiry, Malaysians may contact the Foreign Affairs Ministry at +603-80008000 (during office hours) or +603-88874570 (after office hours).

Putrajaya's new position on North Korea might also complicate the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 qualifiers game between the two countries, slated to be held in Pyongyang on Oct 5.

The Foreign ministry said the travel band would be reviewed once the situation has returned to normal.

On Sept 20, FAM president Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim announced in a statement that he had been given special permission from North Korea to travel direct to Pyongyang prior to the match, instead of having to stop over in Beijing, China first.

Malaysia denied the allegation but diplomatic ties were strained.

However, Wisma Putra did not state if North Koreans are allowed to enter Malaysia.
