The City of Bijeljina is located in an attractive geostrategic location – at tripoint of the Republic of Srpska/BaH with Serbia and Croatia, the crossroads between large urban and industrial centres – Belgrade, Novi Sad, Banja Luka, Šabac, Tuzla, Sarajevo... At approximately thirty kilometres from Bijeljina there is an entrance to the Pan-European Corridor 10, or E-70 motorway Belgrade-Zagreb. This road is the shortest way from Semberija to Belgrade and Zagreb, and then to west and central Europe and south and east of the Balkan Peninsula.
The territory of the City has two border crossings with Serbia, over the rivers Sava and Drina (Rača and Pavlović Bridge), which are the most frequent crossings for the traffic coming from the west and south of the Republic of Srpska/BaH to the north of Serbia and Belgrade. There is a small border crossing in Jamena where a ferry is used to cross the river towards Serbia.

The City of Bijeljina has access to the navigable part of the river Sava towards the north. It is planned to renovate the old port in Rača, which was one of the main points of exportation in the north-east of Bosnia in the first half of the twentieth century. In the meantime, the closest river ports to Bijeljina are in Brčko and Sremska Mitrovica (40 and 67 kilometres from Bijeljina respectively).
The railroad Bijeljina-Šid is currently not in use, but it is expected to be renovated in due course. Currently, the closest railway connection to Belgrade, Novi Sad, Zagreb, and further to the rest of Europe is in Šid and Sremska Mitrovica.
Airport “Nikola Tesla” in Belgrade is 121 kilometres away from Bijeljina, the airport in Banja Luka is 220 kilometres away (240 kilometres by motorway through Croatia), and the airport in Sarajevo is 187 kilometres away.
