Abstract: We prove that the quantum $ SO(3)$-invariant of an arbitrary 3-manifold $ M$ is always an algebraic integer if the order of the quantum parameter is co-prime with the order of the torsion part of $ H_1(M,\mathbb{Z})$. An even stronger integrality, known as cyclotomic integrality, was established by Habiro for integral homology 3-spheres. Here we also generalize Habiro's result to all rational homology 3-spheres.
