Recognition of religion or belief in Chile

According to the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the Republic of Chile are classified receptive.

Recognition of religion or belief in Chile


  • Recognition and registration look to be amalgamated with a focus in the system on legal registration rather than existential recognition.

Positive elements:

  • Horizontal recognition is in effect.

  • There are provisions in place to protect unjust deregistrations by the government of already registered organisations.

  • The registration process sets out provisions so that organisations do not need to register sub-organisations and individual religious buildings.


  • To make the Chilean system classify as dynamic, an independent recognition agency would need to be established.

  • Establish differentiation between recognition and registration in order to cater to belief systems, denominations and communities for the former and organisations and individual religious buildings for the latter.
