Safety

Bishkek is generally regarded as a safe city with a low rate of violent crime. Most visits are trouble-free. However, mugging and theft may occur in cities and rural areas. Attacks have largely taken place at night, in and around local nightclubs and bars or when arriving at home late at night, as the majority of apartment buildings have dark stairwells and no lifts. Avoid walking alone and where possible pre-arrange transport. Keep valuables in a safe place and out of public view. Avoid traveling in unofficial taxis, particularly at night and alone, or if there is another passenger already in the car.

Preferred taxi: Yandex taxi; downloaded app here 

Emergency numbers: 112 and 102.

Evangelism

Law against proselytism includes street evangelism. The law will be in effect if someone complains against you. There are different sanctions against evangelism, including paying a penalty. We don’t recommend giving tracts, books, or trying emphatically evangelize people. Conversations with people are not prohibited :). Our church does street evangelism using a gentle approach. If we are asked which church we belong to, we don’t give out the name of our church as it is our individual desire to talk to people. We recommend you to be with local people when sharing the Gospel.

Welcome to Bishkek!
