Right to asylum is a constitutional right in Bosnia and Herzegovina

The right to asylum, which means the right of foreigners to seek asylum in another State and the right to enjoy protection by that State from persecution in his or her country of origin, is a fundamental right guaranteed by international human rights standards.

Article III/3.f) of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Constitution prescribes  exclusive competence of the BiH insitutions for the policy and regulation of immmigration, refugees and asylum issues.

Even though the question of asylum is within the competence of the State of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the BiH Consitution does not specifically provides for the «right to asylum» in the catalogue of rights and freedoms enumerated in article II/3 of the BiH Constitution.

Contrary to the BiH Constitution and the Constitution of the Repulika Srpska, the Constitution of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina stipulates that the Federation of BiH will ensure that all individuals on the territory of Federation enjoy the right to asylum.
