Recognition of religion or belief in San Marino

According to the standards set out in the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the Republic of San Marino are classified apathetic.

Recognition of religion or belief in San Marino


  • A degree of state privilege is bestowed to the Catholic Church.

  • Investigations are periodically conducted by state authorities; as long as these “audits” remain non-discriminatory and non-invasive, then these should retain propriety.

  • Recognition and registration are amalgamated rather than ideally differentiated; procedures for existential recognition are non-existent with legal registration, especially with a focus on tax-exemption, as being the primary means of gaining any semblance of recognition in this small enclaved country.

Positive elements:

  • Freedom of religion or belief is broadly upheld by the government in practice.


  • Establish a revitalised recognition system that is able to bestow existential recognition and legal registration simultaneously as well as to all belief systems equally and at multiple levels of activity.

  • Establish a recognition agency that is independent of government to deal with the revitalised recognition system.
