Regulatory report: Kyrgyzstan – HnB, oral tobacco and nicotine pouches, March 2022

Kyrgyzstan introduced heated tobacco regulations for the first time in 2021. It is regulated as a smoking tobacco product and, in essence, treated like cigarettes.

Non-smoking tobacco products, with the exception of nasvay, and nicotine-containing non-smoking products are prohibited in Kyrgyzstan. Therefore, nicotine pouches, and most oral tobacco, including snus, are banned in the country.

This report provides a detailed overview of the current and possible near-future regulation on heated and oral tobacco and nicotine pouches, covering all policy areas from labelling and packaging and notification requirements, advertising and public-use restrictions to taxation and retail channel laws.
