They have to actually "cancel" the Green Card boxes, so it's possible that you'll get it without any cancelled boxes. I remember being very amused when getting my first Polish Green Card as it meant that I could drive to Iran with insurance
I think very few people know that you need BiH insurance too if you drive to Dubrovnik from northern croatia.

I drove from Dubrovnik to Zagreb last year with a Bentley, because I assumed it should have insurance for that part of Bosnia we drove via Bihac to Zagreb. Very cool to see some more of Bosnia and the locals loved the car

here in HR you get it regularly while making yearly insurance, it is free of charge, and you can get a free copy whenever you want if you lose it.

30 months Pocitelj

"...Pocitelj – Medjugorje, 11km, 100 million € from EIB, 1% interest rate over 25 years. Works should begin in summer 2015, construction time 30 months..."
Is it really possible that motorway will get to Pocitelj only in December 2017?!?!
30 months construction seems to me exagerated... Any update about this info?...

1,2km tunel an 945m bridge 30 months is not to much you can take a look at similar projects around the world and the time frame is 30 to 36 months. It would take the same or longer in Italy.

No updates.

Your comment is due to lack or very little knowledge concerning road construction. In the worst case because of ignorance.

I actually wonder if we'll see any extensions of the A1 beyond Pocitelj for a few years. The connection from Pocitelj is needed quite badly, but after that?

For what it's worth, is it just me, or is the A1 actually useless for traffic in the Sarajevo-Dubrovnik direction?

Yes, for now it's useless.

A1 section from Sarajevo to Tarcin can be currently used when going from Sarajevo to Dubrovnik. Once fully built, you'll be able to use Sarajevo-Pocitelj when going to Dubrovnik.

Yes, you can use it, but is it really worth going the long way round? If the border crossing in Metković isn't busy, it's a very long detour to use the A1. The D62 isn't a good road, and using the A1/D425 in Croatia also incurs tolling costs.

Have you considered Mostar-Stolac-Trebinje-Dubrovnik?
That's probably your fastest route at this time.

However, as more and more of A1 is built between Sarajevo and Pocitelj, this route will be more and more attractive.

Haven't tried, no. I've done Sarajevo-Trebinje via Brod na Drini, which was torture (not the road surface, just the actual road) between Sarajevo and Brod na Drini and quite acceptable after that. I don't know where it was, but there was one point after Brod na Drini where the road has been considerably modernised with a tunnel - and it was a sheer pleasure to drive on.

I suppose the real problem with the Bosnian A1 is that it should connect into the Croatian A1 going further south, but who knows what will happen there?

The final route for the Adria-Ionian motorway is still uncertain. It could split off south toward Dubrovnik in Pocitelj (BiH version), or in Ploce (Croatian version). Only one will be built, but either way, using the motorways will be the fastest route to Dubrovnik. In either case, there will soon be a new option to drive on a new connection between Stolac and Neum, which would avoid having to cross three border crossings compared to the Metkovic route, similar to either Trebinje route.

You are correct about the road Sarajevo-Brod na Drini-Tjentiste, which is about 100km long and pretty rough to drive on. The new section was inserted after Tjentiste and is at least 15-20 minute time savings compared to the old route over the mountain. There have been some talks about route corrections between Sarajevo and Brod na Drini using European (cohesion?) funds, since this is part of the connection between the two capitals Sarajevo and Podgorica.

It would certainly be welcomed, I was surprised by just how tough it was to drive that section. I got to Brod na Drini, saw the cafe next to the bridge and immediately ordered two coffees!

Tjentiste was beautiful however, and absolutely worth the drive from Sarajevo.

What strikes me in BiH in general is that the roads are maintained well and there's no real problem with them, but the actual technical challenge of driving the roads (up, down, left, right, left, up, etc) is what hurts. Traffic seems low in many places (even Tuzla-Sarajevo wasn't intolerable) - but with kilometres and kilometres of bends and climbs and absolutely no passing opportunities, it was a real struggle.
