This exemption is expected to enhance cultural understanding, foster economic growth, and reinforce tourism between the two countries.

    The agreement was signed by Reem bint Ebrahim Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Cooperation and Elmedin Konaković, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina, attendees included Zlatan Burzić, the Director of the Bosnian Minister of Foreign Affairs office and Mirela Bubalo, Counsellor for the Bosnian Minister of Foreign Affairs.

    Bosnia and Herzegovina, located on the Balkan Peninsular, gained independence in 1992 and is known for its East-meets-West setting that draws influence from Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian cultures.

    It's a stunning country with lush green landscapes, mountains, waterfalls and rivers, peppered with medieval ruins, old-world towns and more modern cities that still retain plenty of character.

    The nation is also incredibly ethnically diverse and is home to Perucica, one of the last remaining primeval forests in Europe where the trees are hundreds of years old.
