Important Facts

  • The U.S. State Department labels Tajikistan as a major money laundering jurisdiction. Criminal proceeds in Tajikistan derive from both foreign and domestic criminal activities and relate to large amounts of opium and heroin trafficked through the country from Afghanistan to Russia. Additionally, a substantial amount of cash enters financial institutions due to pervasive corruption in Tajikistan, including bribes obtained related to drug trafficking, as well as the popularity of cash transactions in the informal economy.  Mechanisms used to launder illicit gains from drug smuggling are hard to identify, particularly given the pervasive nature of corruption in the country. According to Tajik law officials, money laundering occurs through the country's banking and real estate sectors. Though the country has four established economic free zones primarily designated for manufacturing, it is not known whether the zones take part in national or international money laundering.
