MARKET STRUCTURE 

The Kyrgyz card payments market is at an early stage of development, and suffered a setback with the upheavals of 2010. 

However, the foundations have been laid for growth, with 17 banks issuing cards and 13 participating in the Elcard system. 

VISA is the dominant international brand. 

Zolotaya Korona is the interregional payment card system mostly used for money transfers. Some cards are co-branded Alai-Card. 

National Bank of Kyrgyz Republic, the central bank, is supervisor of the retail payments system and plays the lead role in its development. 

16 Kyrgyz banks have foreign participation in their share capital, including banks from Turkey, Pakistan and Kazakhstan. 

With the withdrawal of UniCredit in March 2013, there is no major western bank presence. Foreign capital accounted for 31.9% of banking sector capital at end-2019. 

NOTABLE MARKET TRENDS 

Rollout of Elcard cards, contactless cards and POS terminals.
