The Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina decided to open borders for foreign citizens travelling to the country. The only condition they need to fulfill is to present a negative PCR test not older than 48 hours.

The borders were closed for foreign citizens in March in order to slow down the spreading of the COVID-19 pandemic. The authorities did not react earlier to the requests of tourist workers and businesses to adopt such a decision, citing the epidemiologic situation in BiH. According to them, the situation is different now and the borders can be opened for all foreign citizens.

In July of 2020, only 13,500 passengers landed at the Sarajevo Airport, while in July of 2019 this number was 181,000. The decision of the Council of Ministers was previously approved by both entities.
