Morocco Implements New Consular Services Procedure for Citizens Abroad

Advertisement

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccan Expatriates has implemented a new protocol for proximity consular services in an effort to improve services for Moroccans living abroad. This program, initiated at the request of HM King Mohammed VI, aims to modernize and improve consular services in line with customer expectations.

The new method, which applies to all diplomatic missions and consular posts, independent of the specific post related to their locations and countries of residency, is a reaction to the Moroccan diaspora’s increasing demands. It aims to deliver contemporary and interactive consular services, in line with HM the King’s dedication to helping Moroccans across the world.

The introduction of a consolidated computerized register of consular registrations on October 23, 2023, was critical to the implementation of this procedure. The unique IDs in this register are unaffected by changes in the attachment post. Simultaneously, significant advancements in computer systems for consular services, encompassing all facets of the reform, were launched.

Moroccans living abroad can use the centralized electronic register to obtain appointments for different consular services such as passports, national identity cards, notarial acts, legalization, and certifications. Applicants may show themselves to any consular network location in the Kingdom to get their services.

To ensure the efficacy of the new method, a test phase for the issuance of proximity consular services at French consular offices began on November 13, 2023. Following a successful pilot, implementation will be extended to Spanish Consulates General beginning November 20, 2023.

Following a comprehensive examination of the test phase at pilot posts in Spain and France, it was agreed to implement this solution throughout all of the Kingdom’s Diplomatic Missions and Consular Posts, giving Moroccans overseas with a standardized and better experience.

Moroccans living abroad can now make appointment requests and obtain all of the aforementioned consular services at any Kingdom diplomatic mission or consular station.

Services connected to civil status, such as transcription of birth and death, issuing of birth and death certificates, and family booklets, are exempt until the application text for the new civil status legislation is implemented. The Ministry reiterates its commitment to improving consular services and meeting the changing demands of the Moroccan diaspora.
