Know Your Customer (KYC) Rules

Tajikistan operates largely on a cash economy and with decentralized accounting systems, which makes money laundering difficult to detect. Furthermore, deficiencies in Tajikistan‘s recently enacted AML/CFT law increase Tajikistan‘s vulnerability to money laundering and terrorism financing.

Criminal proceeds laundered in Tajikistan derive from both foreign and domestic criminal activities related to the large amounts of opium and heroin trafficked from Afghanistan to Russia via Tajikistan. The money laundering proceeds are primarily controlled by high-level drug trafficking networks, with some smaller actors involved. It is suspected that corruption at high levels within the government facilitates the drug trade and associated money laundering. Some money laundering takes place in the formal financial sector, according to the National Bank of Tajikistan (NBT), the Central Bank. Other banks offer clients whose income is likely to be criminally derived the ability to purchase properties in the Persian Gulf States, particularly Dubai. Tajik authorities have reported that some unlawfully derived proceeds are handled through offshore accounts in the Middle East.

While there is a market for smuggled goods, there is little evidence that most items are financed with narcotics money, with the exception of imported cars and other luxury items. There are concerns about the abuse of non-profit organizations, hawalas, money or value transfer services, free trade zones, and bearer shares in regard to money laundering; however, the Government of Tajikistan (GOT) has not provided any information with respect to this issue.

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

ENFORCEMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION ISSUES AND COMMENTS:

Tajikistan adopted several laws in 2011 that attempt to address severe shortcomings identified by international experts. Several changes to the law on securities, adopted in June, establish a regulatory authority, introduce a state register and determine the procedures for transfer of rights to securities. Rules were also adopted for bank payment cards to help identify and limit suspicious transactions and counter the legalization of proceeds from crime and terrorist financing using these instruments.

While the new AML/CFT law does increase the due diligence requirements for foreign politically exposed persons, it does not impose similar requirements for domestic PEPs. The new law defines tipping off; however, international experts have raised serious concerns about the law‘s effectiveness in meeting international recommendations. The new law also put in place new suspicious reporting requirements, but these need some improvements in order to meet international standards. In addition, concerns remain about the authorities‘ ability to access these in a timely fashion.

The GOT has developed an action plan to address noted deficiencies, including by adequately criminalizing money laundering and terrorist financing, establishing and implementing adequate procedures for the confiscation of funds related to money laundering and for identifying and freezing terrorist assets, enhancing financial transparency, ensuring a fully operational and effectively functioning financial intelligence unit (FIU), improving STR requirements, and improving and broadening customer due diligence measures. The GOT also should criminalize tipping off and should provide for criminal liability for legal persons.

The NBT indicated it has received a number of STRs and CTRs since May, but it was not authorized to provide exact numbers. The NBT developed a list of indicators of suspicious transactions and, using provisions of the new law, created an FIU. The FIU will be able to analyze and disseminate information, although there are concerns about its independence and allocated resources.

While Tajikistan has signed several international agreements pertaining to money laundering and financial crime, the government needs to codify these in Tajik law. The country needs to amend its laws to better address seizure, forfeiture, and ultimate disposition of assets determined to be unlawfully derived proceeds of money laundering in accordance with international standards. In addition, the GOT needs to improve its criminalization of terrorist financing to comply with international standards and establish procedures to implement United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1267 and 1373.

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.

Areas bordering Afghanistan, the Kyrgyz Republic and Uzbekistan (see Advisory)

The security situation along the border with Afghanistan remains unstable, as this area is used as a transit point for drugs and other forms of illegal trafficking.

Marked and unmarked minefields are present in areas bordering Afghanistan, the Kyrgyz Republic and Uzbekistan. Exercise a high level of caution when travelling to these areas.

Gorno-Badakhshan (see Advisory)

Tajik security forces have periodically conducted operations in Khorough since July 2012. Communications in the area may be affected by these operations. Should security operations begin, you should leave the area immediately, if it is safe to do so. You should also register online with the Registration of Canadians Abroad service in order to receive the latest advice from the Canadian embassy in Astana, Kazakhstan.

Terrorism

Although there has not been a terrorist incident in Tajikistan since 2010, you should exercise a high degree of caution, regularly review your security practices and remain aware of the security situation in the country.

Crime

While the security situation in Tajikistan, including in Dushanbe, is generally stable, there has been a rise in criminal activities.

The pickpocketing and mugging of foreigners occur. Do not show signs of affluence or carry large sums of money. Exercise caution, particularly in tourist areas, commercial and public establishments frequented by foreigners (e.g. hotels, clubs, restaurants, bars, schools and places of worship) and at outdoor recreation events. You should be particularly vigilant in crowded public places such as markets.

Women’s safety

There have been a number of reports of harassment of women. Travel in groups and in daylight. Please consult Her Own Way: A Woman’s Guide to Safe and Successful Travel for more information.

Demonstrations

Demonstrations concerning Tajikistan’s difficult economic situation may occur. Avoid all demonstrations and large gatherings, follow the advice of local authorities and monitor local media.

Regional travel

Exercise caution in the Rasht (or Karategin) Valley and its Tavildara district, as tensions may still exist following the 2010 clashes between Tajik security forces and militant groups.

Border areas

Some border crossings, especially in the Fergana Valley, which extends across eastern Uzbekistan, the Kyrgyz Republic, and Tajikistan, are not well defined and are very porous.

Neighbouring countries may close their borders unilaterally.

Transportation

Rail service is unreliable and underdeveloped.

Air travel is limited. In winter, poor weather conditions commonly cause sudden flight delays and cancellations. Reservations on regional airlines are not always honoured.

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

General safety information

There are numerous checkpoints, and security forces may fire at vehicles that do not stop. Exercise caution when travelling east of Dushanbe, as armed groups have established checkpoints and target foreigners.

Carry a photocopy of your visa and passport with you at all times. Keep your original documents in safekeeping facilities. Leave a photocopy of your travel documents with a relative or friend at home.

Tourist facilities are very limited.

Energy, water and food shortages are common throughout Tajikistan, especially in winter and spring.

Blackouts and brownouts occur frequently.

Maintain a stock of emergency items at your hotel/residence. If you intend to remain in Tajikistan for extended periods, prepare and review personal emergency plans with your family.

Emergency services

Dial 01 for fire, 02 for the police and 03 for an ambulance.
