Who Needs a Schengen Visa to Enter San Marino?
Apart from Europeans, not everyone needs a Schengen Visa or any visa at all to enter San
Marino and other Schengen member states. There are two main groups of people who need a
Schengen Visa before entering the Schengen area.
The first category is visitors from countries whose governments are in an agreement for
visa liberalization with the European Union, but in times past have been rejected or
deported from any Schengen member states. Although on a general note, citizens from
such countries do not need a visa, that citizen in particular needs to own a Schengen Visa.
The second category is visitors from countries whose governments have no visa
liberalization consensus with the
Most countries fall into this category; some include Saudi Arabia, the Central African
Republic, the Democratic Republic Of Congo, Nigeria, Cape Verde, Mali, Mongolia, North
Korea, Ghana, and New Guinea. These two categories must obtain a Schengen Visa before
entering San Marino and the other Schengen member states.
