Participation of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest is still uncertain. It was announced on official press release by BHRT that participation confirmation is lacking due to the financial difficulties. EBU granted them a deadline extension until 14 November to make a final decision considering their participation.
BHRT stated that revenues of TV fees has decreased by 2 million Bosnian marks in the last 9 months, but they are looking into other ways to finance the participation fees.
This is not the first time BHRT has had financial difficulties with participation fees. In 2013 Bosnia and Herzegovina withdrew due to the lack of funds and sponsors. Similar scenario followed up in 2014 when Bosnia and Herzegovina submitted preliminary application but later withdrew thus making it 2 editions of Eurovision Song Contest without participation.
Last participation of Bosnia and Herzegovina was in Baku where Maya Sar performed Korake Ti Znam.
