Payment Organization

National Interbank Payment System (UZKART). 

Domestic Card Brand

UzCard cards. 

Market Structure

Historically, more than 80% of cards issued were domestic-only UzCard cards using Duet smart card technology. From 2015, UzCard cards are issued as EMV cards branded with the new UzCard logo. 

International cards, mainly VISA-branded, have only a small presence in the market. 

Although bank depositors’ funds are guaranteed by the state, the vast majority of payments are conducted in cash, reflecting widespread distrust of the banks.

Agrobank and National Bank of Uzbekistan are the dominant banks.

With its diversified economy and solid growth rates, Uzbekistan’s economy is less dependent on international money transfers than some neighbouring countries. 

Notable Market Trends

Rollout of UzCard EMV cards; contactless cards and POS terminals.
