Armenia – Know Your Customer (KYC) Rules

Armenia is not a regional financial center and is not believed to be at major risk for money laundering and terrorist financing. However, governmental corruption, an organized crime presence and a large shadow economy make the country vulnerable. The major sources of laundered proceeds stem from theft, tax evasion and fraudulent financial activity, particularly transactions with forged credit cards. Money laundering in Armenia generally takes place through the banking system, through informal remittances from Armenians living abroad, and through high-value transactions such as real estate purchases.

Travel Risk

Security

The decision to travel is your responsibility. You are also responsible for your personal safety abroad. The Government of Canada takes the safety and security of Canadians abroad very seriously and provides credible and timely information in its Travel Advice. In the event of a crisis situation that requires evacuation, the Government of Canada’s policy is to provide safe transportation to the closest safe location. The Government of Canada will assist you in leaving a country or a region as a last resort, when all means of commercial or personal transportation have been exhausted. This service is provided on a cost-recovery basis. Onward travel is at your personal expense. Situations vary from one location to another, and there may be constraints on government resources that will limit the ability of the Government of Canada to provide assistance, particularly in countries or regions where the potential for violent conflict or political instability is high.

Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding areas (see Advisory)

The border with Azerbaijan, including the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic of Azerbaijan, is closed. A ceasefire has been in effect since May 1994, although armed clashes and gunfire along the 5-km buffer zone between the border and the ceasefire line occur sporadically. There are many landmines surrounding the conflict zones with Nagorno-Karabakh.

Border areas

Be particularly vigilant near all land borders. As the land border with Turkey is closed, you should only travel between Yerevan and Istanbul by air.

Crime

Pickpocketing, mugging and theft from cars and homes occur. Do not show signs of affluence.

Demonstrations

Demonstrations occur and have the potential to suddenly turn violent. They can lead to significant disruptions to traffic and public transportation. Avoid all demonstrations and large gatherings, follow the advice of local authorities and monitor local media.

Public Transportation

Public transportation networks are overcrowded and poorly maintained.

Pedestrians may not have the right of way.

Minibuses are often involved in accidents.

Some roads outside Yerevan are poorly maintained. Do not travel after dark. Poor driving standards, inadequate road signs and poor road conditions make road travel hazardous. Winter travel can be extremely hazardous at higher elevations. Police may set up roadblocks to search vehicles.

Be cautious when travelling by train. Store personal belongings and documents in a safe place, do not leave the compartment unattended and lock the door from the inside.

See Transportation Safety in order to verify if national airlines meet safety standards.

General safety information

Armenian authorities conduct frequent identity checks. Carry a photocopy of your passport and leave another one with a relative or a friend at home. Keep passports and valuables in a safe.

Arrange to be met at the airport.

Emergency services

Dial 101 for the fire department, 102 for the police and 103 for ambulance services.
