In 2008 Bosnia and Herzegovina signed a Stabilisation and Association Agreement(SAA), which has not yet taken effect. Contractual relations between the EU and Bosnia and Herzegovina are currently governed by the Interim Agreement.  

At the end of 2010, citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina were granted the right to travel to the Schengen Areawithout a visa.

In March 2011, the EU agreed a new strategy for the country, set out in Council Conclusions . Since September 2011 it has strenghtened its presence. It is represented in Bosnia and Herzegovina by the EU Special Representative/EU Head of Delegation, who has a dual mandate.

The EU's presence in the country also falls under the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP). This includes the EU Special Representative and the EUFOR ALTHEA military mission. The mandate of the first EU civilian CSDP mission – the EU Police Mission (EUPM) - expired at the end of June 2012. The EU continues to provide support for law enforcement through the office of the EU Special Representative (EUSR)/EU Delegation, and in other ways.
