U.S.-San Marino Relations
Most of the Italian peninsula was unified into one state by 1861, but San Marino remained independent. The U.S. established diplomatic relations with San Marino in 1861. The two countries enjoy friendly relations and are on excellent terms. The U.S. and San Marino work together in areas such as international trade and the promotion of democracy and human rights. San Marino consistently supports U.S. foreign policy positions, as well as U.S. candidates to international organizations. The U.S. does not have an embassy in San Marino, but the U.S. Ambassador to Italy is also accredited to San Marino. For consular purposes, San Marino is within the jurisdiction of the Florence consular district. Consulate officials regularly visit San Marino to carry out diplomatic demarches, represent U.S. interests, and administer consular services.
