With a temporary passport, leaving the country is possible, but those residing in Bosnia and Herzegovina will need to wait for a new passport. It is important to transfer the old Bosnia and Herzegovina visa to the new passport, and even when applying for a new passport online, a police report is still required. Once issued, the passport can be tracked online using the tracking number.
