After Croatia abolished the mandatory 14-day isolation for citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina, an increase in state border crossings is evident.
Thus, on July 1 and 2, 2020, 108,974 people crossed the state border of BiH, according to Bosnian Border Police.
Out of the total number, 39,786 Bosnians were registered, 20,343 at the entrance and 19,443 at the exit.
“In the same period, out of the total number of persons registered when crossing the state border, 69,188 foreign citizens were registered, 36,121 at the entrance, while 33,067 were registered at the exit,” said the spokesperson of the Border Police Franka Vican.
It should be reminded that the decision of the Civil Protection Headquarters of the Republic of Croatia, on June 30, 2020, enabled third-country nationals, including Bosnia and Herzegovina, to enter the Republic of Croatia, provided that certain conditions were met.
The decision on the temporary ban on crossing the border crossings of the Republic of Croatia, in the case of third-country nationals (including Bosnia and Herzegovina) does not apply to health professionals, health researchers and associates, care professionals for the elderly and persons requiring urgent medical treatment, cross-border workers, carriers of goods and other transport staff to the extent necessary, diplomats, police officers in the performance of their duties, civil protection services and teams, personnel of international organizations and international military personnel in the performance of their functions, passengers in transit, persons traveling for tourism or other business reasons or who have another economic interest, and persons traveling for education or other urgent private reasons.
Persons who meet the above conditions are required to register online through the application entercroatia.mup.hr and leave the necessary information in order not to create crowds at border crossings when filling.
Persons who meet the above conditions will be allowed to cross the border crossings of the Republic of Croatia in compliance with general and special recommendations and instructions of the Croatian Institute of Public Health.
This Decision shall enter into force on 1 July 2020 and shall apply until 15 July 2020.
