Green Card for Bosnia/ Croatia

I am intending to drop into Dubrovnik(Croatia) & travel coastwards towards Split (Croatia)...I believe there is a border that is stopping me Bosnia. To buy a green card...could anyone confirm the price for 1 bike or indeed if Google map is correct!

Thanks in advance

You had to cross Bosnia and you need green card (in the peak of the season they will probably just wave you through, but you never known).

You do have to pass through a 12 mile stretch of Bosnia but you will be waved through and you can't buy temporary cover at that crossing.

Normally you won't encounter any problems, just say you are on "tranzit", you will be waved through.

Your plan B is much more interesting, though. It takes maybe 2 more hours, but it is a nice drive.

Kind regards, enjoy your trip.

We bought insurance at the border at Metkovic three years ago on the way through Croatia to Mostar in Bosnia.

Don't worry I went though twice this year and twice last year, wave you straight through only stop the Croatian and bosnian plates, I think the border guards are ordered to not interrupted holiday makers on route unless they shoot at you, (I think)

There are no issues on this coastal road. You will be checked if heading through the border into Bosnia proper( towards Mostar) and will require the insurance (Osigoranje) to be bought there.

Charles, thanks very much for posting that summary of insurance costs.

I'm in Zadar at the moment, planning on poking my way through the former Yugoslavian countries, and I have found it very confusing and difficult to find information about the insurance requirements and availability for all these countries.

Your post above is very helpful, thanks again.

Michael
