Recognition of religion or belief in Venezuela

According to the standards set out in the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela are classified restrictive.

Recognition of religion or belief in Venezuela


  • Recognition and registration are amalgamated rather than ideally differentiated; a focus is placed on legal registration with few to no means of existential recognition.

  • Reports of strained relations and tensions between the government and religious organisations demonstrates a lack of functions within the recognition system to enable communication between the government and religious groups; a revitalised recognition system and especially the establishment of a recognition agency to remediate relates between the government and religious entities should resolve these issues.

Positive elements:

  • Freedom of religion or belief is generally though not broadly practiced by the government.


  • Establish a revitalised recognition system that provides opportunities for both existential recognition and legal registration to all belief systems and their derivatives in order to be classified as receptive in the Spectrum of Religious Recognition.

  • To be classified as dynamic, establish a recognition agency that works independently of government control that has the responsibility to manage the recognition system whilst also maintaining the authority that it requires to ensure that decisions of recognition and registration are respected nationwide.
