The United States government appears to be going forward with a plan to ban United States residents from visiting North Korea, according to a company that offers tours of the reclusive nation.

Koryo Tours says it has been informed that a travel ban will soon be implemented, keeping U.S. citizens from traveling to North Korea for their tours, which have gained popularity as a destination for tourists.

North Korea has allowed outside citizens to tour government-approved areas of the country, on the condition that they stay with their government-approved tour groups at all times within the country.

It is believed that the ban may go into effect on July 27.
