Welcome Speech by the Consul

I would like to extend the most heartfelt greetings to all those who visit this website of the Consulate of San Marino to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

San Marino, officially the Most Serene Republic of San Marino, often abbreviated to the Republic of San Marino, is the oldest republic in the world, founded on 3 September 301 anno domini.

It is a landlocked state in southern Europe located in the north-central Italian peninsula, on the border between the Italian regions of Emilia-Romagna ( province of Rimini) and Marche (province of Pesaro and Urbino).

It has a territorial extension of 61.19 km², populated by 33 422 inhabitants. Since 2008, the historic centre of the city of San Marino and Mount Titano have been listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site as “evidence of the continuity of a free republic since the thirteenth century”.

It is the intention of the Consul and the Consulate’s staff to offer all the available and most accurate information for all private individuals, public institutions, and economic operators interested in the Republic of San Marino, in order to promote friendly bilateral relations of mutual benefits between the Republic of San Marino and the United Kingdom, as well to promote and protect the best interests of the San Marino citizens, residents and visitors in the UK.

For information and appointments please do not hesitate to email us at cons.londra@gov.sm.

Thank you for your good understanding and cooperation!
