Brylex Tours does offer tours to Cuba, however must do so through legal means as laid out by the United States government. Main Article from the US Embassy in Cuba
- North Korea - The North Korean government requires that all people visiting their country do so via an established and approved North Korean Governmental Tour Agency and are accompanied by a North Korean guide during the entirety of the stay within the country. The US government also has several restrictions on US citizens visiting North Korea that must be taken into consideration before planning a North Korean tour can commence. North Korea has many laws pertaining to freedom of speech that must be adhered to for legal reasons.
- Turkmenistan - The Turkmen government requires that any visitors to its country are accompanied by a Turkmen guide person during the entirety of their stay within the country. The Turkmen government also has many laws regarding freedom of speech that must be adhered to for legal reasons.
- Other countries might have significantly more complex visa procedures or freedom of speech laws, these will be included in an individual Tour Agreement as they do not constitute enough of a barrier to the tours offered by Brylex Tours to appear in this notice.
