Is Kyrgyzstan really that difficult in means of employment?

Learning how to hire in Kyrgyzstan can be rather tricky. The reason being, employment within an EOR solution can be arranged using a project-based employment contract only upon so-called “patent”. The employment process is organized by local payroll/accounting companies. There is no way a company (client) can hire an employee permanently in the Kyrgyz Republic via an EOR provider. There are some benefits for an employer in this case:

  • A company can hire an employee in Kyrgyzstan only for a relatively short term. This means less liability for the employer.
  • There is no mandatory employment history documentation in the Kyrgyz Republic, so there is less hassle for the employer, again.
  • All benefits, taxes, and bonuses still get accounted for and included in the contract. This is normally taken care of by a PEO/EOR like Acvian.
  • tax law complications
  • employment legislation changes
  • filing annual reports
  • local bank registration
  • Working out employee benefits and insurance policies according to the country specifics.

Central Asia and international employment

Companies willing to hire from Uzbekistan can find that a clear employment contract is the best option. Fixed-term contracts are this country’s peculiarity as it is Kyrgyzstan’s. Be sure to follow employment laws, since they are outlined very strictly in the region. For instance, certain work categories are prohibited from working overtime.

Benefits of hiring in Kyrgyzstan/Central Asia using global EOR
