The United Arab Emirates and Bosnia and Herzegovina have taken a significant step towards strengthening bilateral relations with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on visa exemption. Wego reports that on 6 November 2023, these two nations officially sealed the deal, aiming to facilitate and promote travel, trade, and people-to-people exchanges between them.

The MoU stipulates that citizens of the UAE and Bosnia and Herzegovina who hold valid passports are now entitled to visa-free travel for tourism, business, and short-term visits. This exemption is anticipated to augment cultural understanding, catalyze economic growth, and boost tourism between the two countries.

The agreement was inked by Reem bint Ibrahim Al Hashemy, Minister of State for International Cooperation, and Elmedin Konaković, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Among the attendees were Zlatan Burzić, Director of the Bosnian Minister of Foreign Affairs office, and Mirela Bubalo, Counsellor for the Bosnian Minister of Foreign Affairs. Both parties underscored the significance of the MoU in fortifying bilateral relations.
