Here's what you need to know.
However, these limits will have little practical impact on the two countries as few DPRK visitors travel to the United States and the new restrictions on Venezuela apply only to government officials, not to the broader population, according to local experts.
The new rules go into effect on October 18 and do not apply to current visa holders (though once their existing visas expire, they will be subject to the ban).
Administration officials have said the new policy is the result of interagency collaborations and negotiations with several foreign governments.
Moreover, as the DPRK and Venezuela included, the new travel restrictions will no longer be seen as a "Muslim ban", analysts said.
Citizens of Iran will not be eligible for tourism and business visas, but remain eligible for student and cultural exchange visas if they undergo additional scrutiny.
For the last three months, the administration used an executive order to ban foreign nationals from six Muslim-majority countries - Iran, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Sudan - from entering the U.S. unless they had a "bona fide" relationship with a person or entity in the country.

Refugees From Burundi Killed in Congo, Activists Say
The UN envoy called for a swift investigation and urged Congo's security forces to use force as a last resort. The crisis in Burundi has created over 400 000 refugees and left an estimated 700 opposition supporters dead.
That ban had barred citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen who lacked a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States" from entering the US. The order does not address the refugee ban, which is set to expire on October 24, but a separate order lowering the refugee cap is expected soon.
What is the reason for the restrictions?
"Making America Safe is my number one priority".
The enhanced national security measures, aim to create, for the first time in history, minimum requirements for worldwide cooperation to support visa and immigration vetting and adjudications for individuals seeking entry to the U.S. They are designed to protect Americans' safety in an era of risky terrorism and transnational crime.
Almost 200 countries were evaluated, with Trump saying that the countries subject to the ban remain deficient with respect to their identity-management and information-sharing capabilities. Citizens of those countries would be denied entry or face other travel restrictions until their governments made changes.
What is being said about it?Unlike the previous orders, Sunday's proclamation is meant to be in place indefinitely. Tell @realDonaldTrump that you will not be distracted.
The restrictions on individuals and new countries covered by executive order will not be implemented immediately.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday expanded a travel ban to include people from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in East Asia, Venezuela in Latin America and Chad in Africa.
