Those travelling from Italy, certain provinces in China, South Korea and Iran will not be able to enter Bosnia and Herzegovina until further notice, the Border Police said on Wednesday.

The measure was adopted by Bosnia’s Ministry of Civil Affairs and came into force after Security Minister Fahrudin Radoncic requested it after a meeting between the Chairman of Bosnia’s Council of Ministers and the prime ministers of the two semi-autonomous regions – the Federation (FBiH) and Republika Srpska (RS).
