Although it is now relatively safe to visit Bosnia and Herzegovina, one must exercise special caution when travelling to the former war-torn country, once at the centre of the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s. It is worth noting that the US Department of State issued a travel warning on March 30, 2006 for people considering visiting Bosnia and the document remains on the Department's website.

According to the US government's travel warning, crime in urban centres, occasional ethnic violence and, most of all, unexploded landmines remain potential dangers in Bosnia. Landmines still litter some rural areas and abandoned villages, so it is very important to remain on paved roads when travelling in rural Bosnia and avoid most open fields and forests. According to a Bosnian government agency in charge of dealing with this problem, there are still over 1 million unexploded landmines scattered across Bosnia. Nearly 4% of Bosnia's territory is considered affected and one must not venture into these areas.
