Mad Rush By Croatians In Bosnia For Passports

There has been a unprecedent wave of Croatians in Bosnia and Herzegovina applying for biometric Croatian passports this week ahead of Croatia’s entry into the European Union next week.

With changes set to come into effect from 1 July, the mad rush has seen people que for three days at the Croatian consulate office in Mostar, reports Tportal. “This is terrible, there is no order at all. I have been waiting for three days to hand my application in. Even today I had no luck,” said one disgruntled pensioner. With the rush for passports many have taken the trip to neighbouring Croatia to apply. Those with the new biometric passports will not have any restrictions in crossing the border into Croatia once Croatia join the EU on 1 July.
