Guidelines for International Radio Amateurs to Obtain Work Permit to work in
Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) has accepted all conditions under which
international radio amateurs who are citizens of CEPT member countries (see list on
http://www.erodocdb.dk/docs/doc98/official/pdf/TR6101.PDF) are able to work in the
territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
According to this protocol there are two classes:
1. CEPT1 (code class - obligation to work under knowledge of CW)
2. CEPT2 (no code class - no obligation to know CW)
Each signatory country of CEPT is obligated to coordinate their classes in accordance
with the two CEPT classes stated above. In addition these international amateurs are
required to obtain a CEPT license in addition to the national class license they already
A CEPT class license is required only if the radio amateur is working abroad- if the
operator is working in his or her owns country he/she needs to follow the national
regulations of that country.
The following is a list of conditions that the international radio operators must follow:
1. For CEPT license holders who will work in BiH for a period of three months or
less they only need to present their valid work permit for ARS work with their radio
equipment to the customs officers when entering the country. It is not necessary
for them to obtain a work permit from the BiH communications regulatory
authorities. During this short-term work period the radio operator may use the call
sign: E7/ (personal call sign).
2. For CEPT license holders who will be working in BiH for a period longer than
three months they are obligated to obtain a work permit from the BiH
