State Department: Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia - Travel Warning, October 2, 1998


Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia - Travel Warning
October 2, 1998

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the potential for increased danger of travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina. In particular, the potential exists in the Republika Srpska entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina for retaliation against United States citizens and interests, as members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) are considering the necessity for military action against Serbia-Montenegro. Therefore, the Department of State urges U.S. citizens to consider departing the Republika Srpska entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The war in Bosnia and Herzegovina was halted by the Dayton Peace Accords in November 1995. However, there are still risks from occasional localized political violence, landmines, unexploded ordnance, and carjackings. As many as one million landmines are still scattered throughout the country, and visitors are advised to remain on well-trafficked surfaces and roadways. There are also occasional flare-ups of violence, sometimes linked to protests over the return of displaced persons and arrests of war criminals. Visitors should avoid crowds and stay away from demonstrations. The risk of being caught in political violence remains highest in Mostar, Brcko, Foca, Drvar, Zepce, Stolac, Zenica, Pale, and Srebrenica.

U.S. citizens in Bosnia and Herzegovina despite the Travel 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 Ali Pasina 43, telephone number (387)(71) 667-900, fax number (387)(71) 659-722.

No. 98-050

This supersedes the Travel Warning on Bosnia and Herzegovina dated July 13, 1998, to note the potential for increased danger to U.S. citizens in the Republika Srpska entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
