Government of Jersey publishes sanctions guidance for Afghanistan
On 31 August 2021, the Minister for External Relations and Financial Services published sanctions guidance regarding the uncertain situation in Afghanistan. The guidance is available from the Jersey Gazette.
All relevant persons and non-profit organisations are encouraged to be extra vigilant when engaging, or considering engaging, in any financial activity in relation to Afghanistan including that associated with humanitarian aid.
Afghanistan is one of the countries and territories already identified as presenting a higher risk of money laundering/terrorist financing, and the UN sanctions in respect of individuals and entities associated with the Taliban have effect in Jersey.
