Kyrgyzstan: oral tobacco and nicotine pouch regulation, March 2024

The Law on the Protection of the Health of Citizens of Kyrgyzstan from the Consequences of Tobacco Consumption, Nicotine and Exposure to Second-hand Tobacco Smoke and Aerosol (the Tobacco Act) specifies that within the territory of Kyrgyzstan, the production, import and circulation (including storage, wholesale and retail trade, and export) of non-smoking tobacco products, with the exception of nasvay, is prohibited. The Tobacco Act defines non-smoking tobacco products as tobacco products intended for sucking, chewing, or sniffing, which means that these products are banned in Kyrgyzstan.

Nasvay is a traditional oral tobacco product consisting of a moist, powdered tobacco dip consumed mostly in Afghanistan and surrounding countries.

This report examines the current regulatory framework in place for oral tobacco and nicotine pouches in Kyrgyzstan, covering all policy areas from advertising and notification to taxation and labelling requirements.
