2011년 이후 방북 이력 있으면 ESTA 통한 美 무비자 입국 불가
From now on, anyone who has visited North Korea or lived there at any time since March 2011 will not be allowed into the United States using its special visa waiver system known as ESTA.
They’ll have to apply for an ordinary visa.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced the new measures on Monday.
ESTA allows people from 38 countries including South Korea to visit the U.S. for up to 90 days without a visa.
There are only a few exceptions for diplomats and military-related cases
The U.S. applies similar restrictions to people who have visited certain other countries including Iraq, Iran and Syria.
According to Seoul’s Unification Ministry, this rule change will apply to some 37-thousand South Koreans.
