Recognition of religion or belief in Marshall Islands


  • Recognition and registration are amalgamated rather than ideally differentiated; there are no state procedures for existential recognition, only for legal registration.

  • Tax-exemption is the primary means of gaining any semblance of recognition in the country.

Positive elements:

  • Freedom of religion or belief is generally upheld by the government.


  • Establish provisions for existential recognition distinct from that of legal registration in order to become receptive.

  • In order to become dynamic, the Marshallese government would need to establish a recognition agency to manage the aforementioned recognition system but should relinquish its control of such an agency upon its establishment in order to ensure the agency’s independence from government.
