State Department: Bosnia-Hercegovina - Travel Warning, August 7, 1997

Bosnia and Herzegovina - Travel Warning
August 7, 1997

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens not to travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The war has left landmines and unexploded ordnance throughout the country; railways were bombed and remain inoperable; only the airport in Sarajevo has reopened to limited commercial air traffic. Carjacking is common. The December 1995 Dayton Peace Accords are being implemented with the NATO-led Stabilization Force (SFOR) overseeing its military provisions. While progress in establishing a durable peace continues, the situation remains volatile.

U.S. citizens visiting or remaining in Bosnia and Herzegovina despite the warning, should register at the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo and obtain updated information on travel and security within Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Consular Section is located at Obala Kulina Bana #1, 4th floor, telephone number (387)(71)667-900, fax number (387)(71) 443-596.

No. 97-027

This supersedes the Travel Warning for Bosnia and Herzegovina dated June 5, 1996.
