October 25, 2020 - Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina are to build the joint border crossings Šćepan Polje - Hum, on the road Plužine - Foča, Zupci - Sitnica on the road Herceg Novi - Trebinje and Ilino Brdo - Klobuk on the road Nikšić - Trebinje. The announcement was made by the Prime Minister of Montenegro Dusko Markovic, who together with the Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina Zoran Tegeltija and the Head of the European Union Delegation to Montenegro Ambassador Oana Cristina Popa opened the joint road border crossing Vracenovici - Deleusa on the road Niksic - Bileca.

The Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Montenegro recalled that the EU had provided Montenegro with 20 million euros of support to make its borders safer and more efficient, as envisaged by the national strategy for integrated border management.

The Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina said that in the coming years, other border crossings between Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina would be as they should be in the 21st century, hoping that one day there will be no need for border crossings.

Construction of the joint border crossing Vraćenovići - Deleuša began on February 27 this year after Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina determined the locations of future reciprocal border crossings.

The Director of the Commission for Borders in the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Montenegro, Milan Paunović, explained that the joint border crossing has three lanes in each direction plus one lane for trucks. There is customs control on each side, and police control is joint.
