Bosnia and Herzegovina debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest 1993 after coming second in the qualification round "Kvalifikacija za Millstreet", and most recently took part in 2012. Prior to 1993, Bosnia and Herzegovina participated in the Eurovision Song Contest as part of Yugoslavia.
Low average scores meant Bosnia and Herzegovina did not qualify for the contests in 1998 and 2000, and the country did not participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Malmö for financial reasons. The national broadcaster has stated that it hopes to return to the contest in 2014. On 18 December it was revealed that Bosnia and Herzegovina would not be returning for 2014 after entering initially then withdrawing soon after.
They returned to the contest in 2016 after being able to secure the funds needed to participate, yet were unable to qualify for the final, ending their 100% qualification streak in the semi-final era.
BHRT announced that they will shut down their broadcast operations on 30 June 2016 due to outstanding financial debts to the EBU; therefore, it didn't participate in either the 2017 or the 2018 contests. They were sanctioned by the EBU for its lack of money, rendering the country unable to participate at Eurovision in the near future.
