The San Marino passport is a passport issued to citizens of San Marino for international travel.

Application procedure[edit]

Applications for a San Marino passport are lodged at the Passport Office in San Marino (or, in the case of citizens living overseas, at San Marino diplomatic missions) with the following documents:[1]

  • completed passport application form [2]
  • certificates of birth, citizenship, residence (or relevant self-certification form)
  • certificates of criminal record, pending suit and full civil capacity (to be issued by the Court without stamp duty)
  • two photographs, one of which certified by the Registrar of Vital Statistics (also in this case it is possible to use the self-certification form)

In general, the processing time for a passport application is 15 days.

The application fee is €60 for applicants aged over 14, €20 for applicants aged 3–14 and €10 for applicants aged under 3.

In 2014, San Marino citizens had visa-free or visa on arrival access to 151 countries and territories, ranking the Sammarinese passport 16th.[2] It is currently (2014) the only European "ordinary" passport to provide visa-free access to China, and of all nationals who can travel visa-free to China, the citizens of San Marino are granted the longest period to stay (90 days).
