Important Facts

  • The U.S State Department labels the Republic of San Mario as a monitored jurisdiction. Money laundering in San Marino is mainly trade-based and is perpetrated by foreigners who are trying to avoid higher taxes in their home countries. It occurs in both the formal and non-bank financial sectors, unrelated to narcotics trafficking. However, stricter monitoring regulations appear to have resulted in an overall decrease in financial crimes. San Marino does not have a significant market for illegal or smuggled goods.
