Recognition of religion or belief in Solomon Islands

According to the standards set out in the SRR, conditions for RoRB in Solomon Islands are classified restrictive.

Recognition of religion or belief in Solomon Islands


  • Informational requirements are not inappropriate but require continued monitoring to ensure they are not unduly expanded and are not misapplied.

  • The required administration fee for registration is not inappropriate but does exceed the majority of other registration fees.

  • The rule of mandatory registration violates the Bielefeldt provision; this means automatic categorisation as restriction according to the Spectrum of Religious Recognition.

Positive elements:

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


  • Establish provisions for existential recognition distinct from legal registration by reorganising the recognition system.

  • Revoke the rule of mandatory registration.

  • To be classified as receptive, establish a recognition agency to manage the recognition system independently of the government.
