Bosnia and Herzegovina is likely to open its borders to foreign nationals on June 1st, the Council of Ministers Chairman, Zoran Tegeltija, announced on Monday, but it is not yet clear under what conditions.
In a report on the website SrpskaInfo, Tegeltija said that the epidemiological situation in BiH is stable, so it is possible to continue easing the restrictive measures, including the border crossing regime, which have been closed to all foreigners since the epidemic was declared in March. This meant that foreigners entering the country had to undergo a mandatory two-week self-isolation.
The first step towards opening the border should follow this week, because a decision is expected according to which entry will be allowed for business reasons, and the condition for allowing crossing the BiH border for such persons will be an invitation letter and a negative test for coronavirus that will not be older than 48 hours.
"Business people from abroad will be able to cross the state border as early as this week, with mandatory compliance with all measures defined by health professionals," Tegeltija said, but did not clarify whether there would be any restrictions after 1 June.
