Regarding the information in Bosnian media that citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina are prohibited from transiting through the Republic of Croatia at the Doljani Border Crossing to the city of Neum, located in BiH, N1 requested information from the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Croatia, from which they pointed out that such allegations do not stand with additional clarification.
“We allow BiH citizens to transit through the Republic of Croatia with a document which must prove that they will be allowed to enter the countries of final destination” – stated the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Croatia. As an explanation of what was stated for N1, the Ministry of the Interior cites the example of a wife who visits a spouse who is working in Germany.
“In that case, she should have a marriage certificate with her as a certificate of kinship, and a certificate of residence permit from her spouse, as proof of the address where she will stay. Copies are also recognized, and transit will be allowed with these two documents” – they explained.
“If someone leaves BiH and goes further towards Neum, transit through the Republic of Croatia is allowed,” the Croatian Ministry of the Interior emphasized.
