Bosnia, Türkiye Agree on Passport-Free Travel Arrangement

Citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) will soon be able to enter Türkiye with an ID card instead of a passport, and vice versa, said the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday in Sarajevo.

“We discussed further steps toward improving our relations,” Erdogan told joint press conference after his official meeting with the Chairmen and the two members of the tripartite Presidency of BiH, the state-owned news agency FENA reported.

Shortly before heading to Sarajevo, the capital of BiH, Erdogan said Türkiye pursues a policy that supports stability, and development of the Balkans and its Euro-Atlantic integration process.

“BiH and Türkiye have exceptionally friendly and brotherly relations,” said the chairman of the Presidency of BiH, Sefik Dzaferovic, at the press conference.

Dzaferovic added that the trade exchange which is now at about 900 million U.S. dollars must increase to one billion U.S. dollars by the end of the year.

Erdogan embarked on his three-day Balkan tour to strengthen relations with the region. After BiH, Erdogan is scheduled to visit Serbia and Croatia.
