ISKCON is a legally registered and recognized as a religious minority in Macedonia. The main center is located in Skopje, Ul:31 Br:33, nas.

Local members are frequently visited by devotees from other former Yugoslav countries, who are considerably larger in number.

The Sathya Sai Baba Organisation is a legally registered and recognized as a religious minority in Macedonia. The Macedonian Sathya Sai movement, much like the Hare Krishna devotees, has its roots at the end of the 1980s. At that time a group in Skopje was formed spontaneously. Now the Sathya Sai Organization has three centres in Skopje. There is a smaller group in Štip, and a sizable number of sympathizers in the rest of the country.
