If you need to send someone money in Sarajevo, Banja Luka or another city in Bosnia, you can use an online money transfer service. These services allow users to send money to someone in Bosnia from the United States through the use of a credit card.

Log on to your account with a money transfer service by entering your user name and password. If you do not have an account with such a service, sign up for one. Two such services are listed in the Resources section.

Click Send Money. From the state pull-down menu, select the state from which you are sending money. Select Bosnia and Herzegovina as the country to which you are sending money.
