The Ministry of Security (MoS) is responsible for the creation, maintenance, and implementation of immigration and asylum policy in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The MoS issues decisions on applications for asylum filed by asylum seekers in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The MoS also manages the Delijaš Asylum Centre as well as cooperates with the Ministry for Human Rights and Refugees for accommodation of asylum seekers in the Salakovac Refugee Reception Centre.
The Sector for Asylum of the MoS is also responsible for conducting refugee status determination interviews and deciding on applications. Once status as a refugee has been determined or you are granted subsidiary protection, the Ministry for Human Rights and Refugees is responsible for taking care of the rights and concerns of refugees and persons granted subsidiary protection in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
