Risk

Sovereign risk

The sovereign risk rating remains unchanged. The Economist Intelligence Unit expects the implementation of spending cuts agreed with the IMFwhich was halted by the state and entity governments ahead of elections in October 2014to resume now that the new central and entity governments are all in place. We forecast that fiscal consolidation will narrow the budget deficit to an average of 2.1% of GDP in 2015-16, from an estimated 3.6% in 2014.

Banking sector risk

After a weak performance in 2011-14 marked by a rise in non-performing loans, the banking sector will continue to face challenging conditions in 2015, although the expected modest pick-up in real GDP growth should help profitability.

Political risk

Political risk remains high, despite the formation of new central and Federation governments at end-March 2015. The Republika Srpska government has only a small majority, and the three-party Federation government remains divided. Political uncertainty could fuel social unrest, as highlighted by riots in February 2014. The slow pace of reform will impede EU integration.

Economic structure risk

The export sector remains weak, undiversified and vulnerable to fluctuations in commodity prices. The current-account deficit is set to remain large, pointing to continuing problems of external competitiveness.

Travel Risk

Security

The decision to travel is your responsibility. You are also responsible for your personal safety abroad. The purpose of this Travel Advice is to provide up-to-date information to enable you to make well-informed decisions.

Mines

Demining operations are ongoing but unmarked landmines and unexploded ordnance continue to pose a risk, particularly in isolated mountainous areas and in the countryside. Keep to main roads, stay on paved surfaces, avoid abandoned houses and buildings and travel only during daylight hours. War relics and unknown items should not be touched and should be reported to local authorities. For more information, please visit Bosnia and Herzegovina Mine Action Centre website.

Crime

The crime rate is low. Petty crime (such as pickpocketing, purse snatching and snatching visible jewellery) is prevalent, however, particularly in large urban centres. Foreigners are often targeted.

Random violence by organized crime to settle disputes occurs in Sarajevo, and includes the use of firearms. Foreigners are rarely the target of these acts, but there is a risk of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, such as in nightclubs and cafés late at night and in the early morning hours.

Demonstrations

Occasional demonstrations and strikes addressing various grievances occur in the capital and in other cities and might cause traffic disruptions. Demonstrations turned violent in Tuzla in the beginning of February 2014 and spread, with varying degrees of violence, to Sarajevo, Bihac, Zenica, Mostar, Sanski Most, Brčko and many other locations throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina. The violence has since died down and demonstrations have been largely peaceful. Further demonstrations may occur, however, and have the potential to suddenly turn violent. Social tensions also occasionally result in demonstrations. Avoid all demonstrations and large gatherings, follow the advice of local authorities and monitor local media.

Road travel

Travel by road can be hazardous due to traffic congestion and poorly maintained roads and vehicles. Drivers do not follow safe driving practices, and are known to speed and drive drunk. Extreme weather conditions—such as dense fog and black ice—also pose risks. Bosnia and Herzegovina has a disproportionately high rate of death and injury due to motor vehicle accidents. The emergency number for assistance, road conditions and towing service is 1282.

During winter months, many roads are particularly hazardous. Secondary roads and many mountain roads may be blocked. During the summer, traffic is frequently stopped to enable landmine clearance and road repairs. Visit the Bosnia and Herzegovina auto club Bihamk for up-to-date information on road conditions.

There are only two-lane roads. Many secondary roads have no service stations; undertake travel on secondary roads only with a vehicle in excellent mechanical condition and with sufficient fuel, food and water supplies.

Public Transportation

Local rail, tram and bus services are reliable but sometimes slow. Inter-city bus service is widely available and a few train lines operate, although train service is slow and the schedule is often unreliable. Lock compartment doors from the inside when travelling on an overnight train.

Taxi service is available in most towns and for inter-city travel. Use only registered taxis whose licence plates begin with œTA. Ensure that the meter is running. Pay particular attention at the airport.

See Transportation Safety in order to verify if national airlines meet safety standards.

General safety information

Ensure that your personal belongings, passports and other travel documents are secure at all times. Avoid isolated and poorly lit areas after dark. Avoid showing signs of affluence and carrying large sums of cash.

While tourist facilities and services have improved, they may be limited outside major cities.

Dial 112 for emergency assistance.
