At today’s session of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina, a decision was made to open the borders of BiH for citizens of European Union countries with a negative test for coronavirus not older than 48 hours, Klix.ba has learned.
The decision will take effect on July 16th. This decision was made considering that for a long time there has been an opinion that due to the economy it is urgent to open borders for foreigners, ie tourists, with respect to epidemiological measures and a negative test, so as not to endanger the health of the local population.
Pursuant to an earlier decision of the Council of Ministers of BiH, citizens of neighboring countries, namely Montenegro, Croatia and Serbia, are allowed to enter, and citizens of these countries can enter BiH with a passport or ID card.
Negative tests are not required for neighbors when entering BiH, citizens have a different treatment when entering Croatia, which is why they have to prove a justifiable reason for entering (work, tourism, etc.) with a negative PCR test, while a cheaper serological one is enough to enter Montenegro.
It should be noted that on June 30th, the European Union published a list of countries whose citizens are banned from entering the EU member states, ie the Schengen area. BiH is also on that list.
