I'm currently in Croatia, and I'm very close to the border between Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

I only have my Schengen ID Card, and I wonder if that's enough for visiting Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Or do I need my international passport which I didn't bring?

According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_policy_of_Bosnia_and_Herzegovina EU citizens can enter using a national ID card (incl. Irish passport card) for a stay of up to 90 days within 180 days


Citizens of the Kingdom of Sweden are exempted from the visa requirement when entering, exiting or travelling through Bosnia and Herzegovina to 90 days, for a period of six months, starting from the day of entry.

    This is correct. My earlier comment suggested that citizens of only certain Schengen countries could enter BiH with a national ID card, but I was confused. That is the case for Turkey, not BiH.
