Kyrgyzstan – Know Your Customer (KYC) Rules

The Kyrgyz Republic (Kyrgyzstan) operates largely on a cash economy and with decentralized accounting systems, which makes money laundering difficult to detect. The banking sector is small and the Kyrgyz Republic is not a regional financial center. A significant percentage of the country‘s GDP comes from remittances from abroad, posing a money laundering vulnerability. Corruption, organized crime, and a significant shadow economy also make the country vulnerable to money laundering and terrorist financing. Narcotics trafficking, tax and tariff evasion, and corruption related to the performance of official duties or government contracts are generally regarded to be the major sources of laundered proceeds. Money laundering also allegedly occurs through trade-based fraud and bulk cash carriers.

The presence of hawalas, money or value transfer services, and free trade zones poses risks in regard to money laundering; however, there is little information available on these topics.

KNOW-YOUR-CUSTOMER (KYC) RULES:

Enhanced due diligence procedures for PEPs:

A PEP is an abbreviation for Politically Exposed Person, a term that describes a person who has been entrusted with a prominent public function, or an individual who is closely related to such a person. The terms PEP, Politically Exposed Person and Senior Foreign Political Figure are often used interchangeably

    • Foreign PEP: YES
    • Domestic PEP: NO

MONEY LAUNDERING CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS/CONVICTIONS:

Prosecutions: None 2008 – 2011
Convictions: None 2008 – 2011

ENFORCEMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION ISSUES AND COMMENTS:

The Government of the Kyrgyz Republic (GOKR) has adopted anti-money laundering/counter-terrorist financing (AML/CFT) legislation and established the Financial Intelligence Service (FIS). However, the lack of political will and interagency cooperation, resource constraints, inefficient financial systems, and corruption hamper efforts to effectively combat money laundering and terrorist financing. Also, the FIS is not recognized by other government entities as a ―legitimate‖ investigative agency, which causes a lack of cooperation and information sharing across agency lines. As of December 2011, the Kyrgyz Republic‘s Parliament and the GOKR were discussing the possibility of eliminating the FIS and transferring its functions to another government agency.

The banking system is at risk for money laundering, as oversight of the banking sector is generally weak, and key reporting issues need to be resolved: auto dealers and real estate developers are not included in the list of entities required to report large dollar transactions. Additionally, the statutory threshold amount that triggers mandatory reporting remains high at $25,000.

The GOKR should continue to strengthen legislation as it relates to money laundering and financial crimes that support terrorist organizations. In addition, the Kyrgyz Republic must increase and enhance training in AML/CFT investigative techniques. The GOKR developed an action plan to adequately criminalize money laundering and terrorist financing; establish and implement an adequate legal framework for identifying, tracing and freezing terrorist assets; establish and implement adequate measures for the confiscation of funds related to money laundering; establish effective customer due diligence measures for all financial institutions; and implement an adequate and effective AML/CFT supervisory program for all financial sectors.

As of January 1, 2012, casinos will be outlawed in the Kyrgyz Republic. This will provide one less opportunity for money launderers to hide and disperse assets under the cover of a legitimate business operation.

Travel Risk

Security

The decision to travel is your responsibility. You are also responsible for your personal safety abroad. The purpose of this Travel Advice is to provide up-to-date information to enable you to make well-informed decisions.

Areas south and west of Osh, the Fergana Valley and borders with Uzbekistan and Tajikistan

Violent clashes were reported in the Batken, Jalal-Abad and Osh oblasts (provinces) in June 2010 that left more than 350 people dead and at least 2,000 injured. Although no incidents have occurred recently, the security situation in areas south and west of Osh, throughout the Fergana Valley and along the borders with Uzbekistan and Tajikistan remains volatile and unpredictable, and there is a possibility of violence and unrest.

Areas bordering Uzbekistan and Tajikistan are mined. Only use officially recognized border crossings, as landmines may be present in uncontrolled border areas. Confirm that border posts are open before travelling there.

Terrorism

Heightened regional tensions may place you at greater risk. Maintain a high level of personal security awareness at all times, particularly in commercial establishments (such as hotels, clubs, restaurants, bars, schools, places of worship), public places, at outdoor recreational events and in tourist areas frequented by foreigners.

Other border crossings

Uzbekistan land border crossings are open to citizens of some countries, including Canada, but are closed to Kyrgyz citizens. Access to border crossings with Kazakhstan may be restricted without warning.

Crime

The Kyrgyz Republic has a high rate of violent crime and foreigners have been targeted. Organized gangs are common. Robbery, mugging and pickpocketing occur frequently near major hotels, bars and parks and on public transportation. Remain vigilant and ensure that your personal belongings and documents are secure. Do not show signs of affluence and avoid carrying large sums of money.

Robberies have been committed by men in police uniforms; if approached by such a man, ask to see his police credentials. Also, men posing as œmeet and greet airport facilitators lure unsuspecting foreigners into cars and demand money. Make prior arrangements with your contacts and ask for identification upon arrival. Do not leave the airport with anyone who does not show you their identification.

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

Avoid public transportation, which is unsafe and unreliable.

At night, call a reputable taxi service in advance before leaving popular restaurants and places of recreation. Foreigners have been specifically targeted leaving such venues.

Use only officially marked taxis, pre-negotiate the fare and do not share a ride with strangers.

Road travel

Drive defensively, as traffic accidents are a common cause of death and injury. Roads are poorly maintained and inadequately lit, and traffic regulations are often ignored. Buy gas in the cities of Bishkek and Osh because there are few gas stations outside those cities.

Roads to Tashkent are hazardous in winter.

Air travel

Air travel is limited. Unannounced delays and flight cancellations are common in winter due to poor weather conditions. Reservations on regional airlines are not always respected. Confirm flights with your airline prior to departure.

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

General safety information

Police can arrest visitors who do not carry identification. Keep a legally certified copy of your visa and registration with you at all times, and your passport and visa in safekeeping facilities. Leave a photocopy of your travel documents with a relative or a friend at home.

Do not walk or travel alone, especially at night.

Tourist facilities are not highly developed.

Emergency services

Dial 101 for fire emergency services and 102 for police.
