It is very likely that on your trip to Morocco you will not need to go through their embassy in your country, nor through your country’s embassy on Moroccan soil. And it’s just as well, because sometimes these visits are related to tedious bureaucratic procedures or unforeseen events that occur during the trip. However, it is not a bad idea to find out the postal addresses of their headquarters, in case you need to use them. And that’s what we show you below.
Before listing the embassies and consulates of Morocco, and those of other countries in its territory, it is worth remembering what is the difference between consulate and embassy, as it is not always clear. Both are part of the permanent Diplomatic Mission of one country in the territory of another, as a result of a bilateral agreement between both states, which denotes fluid relations.
The embassy is the highest level representation of a country in another country and, therefore, is the place where the ambassador and the rest of the diplomatic officials of the mission work, and in some cases even their residence.
Regarding its status, there is some confusion and ambiguity: its surface area cannot be considered exactly the national territory of that country, but local laws do not necessarily apply to it either. Their status is rather ‘extraterritorial’, hence some embassies around the world often serve as ‘refuge’ or ‘asylum’ for people who are being sought by the justice system of another country and who, if they walk out the door, could be arrested.
What is certain is that, in an embassy, no bureaucratic formalities are carried out: that is what consulates are for, and that is why embassies often have a ‘consular section’, i.e. a sort of consulate within the embassy.
Usually a country has an embassy in another country, normally in its administrative capital, and sometimes they also have consulates, both in the capital and in other important cities of the country, especially if many people with that nationality reside there. In some exceptional cases there may be a consulate without an embassy, although with a different official status (honorary consulate).
Before you travel, you may be interested to know if the Kingdom of Morocco has embassies and consulates in your country. And there is a good chance of that happening, as Morocco has numerous permanent diplomatic missions around the world, including the major countries in economic and demographic terms, as well as most African countries.
This is the result of a foreign policy that has strengthened ties with many countries with which there were hardly any bilateral relations in the past. An example of this is the Agreement on the normalization of relations between Israel and Morocco, signed in 2020.
This is a list of the most important ones, among which are the Anglo-Saxon countries and the major international tourism issuers:
In addition, mention may be made of the headquarters of some organizations for which the Kingdom of Morocco has an embassy, although they are not states as such:
At the Moroccan consulate and its embassy (through its ‘consular section’, located in the same building), you can carry out official formalities:
If there is no Moroccan embassy or consulate in your country, you will have to go to the nearest embassy or consulate located in another country. You can also start the visa process on the official website for the electronic visa: Access Maroc. Through it you will also be able to formulate specific queries.
Knowing where your country’s embassy or consulate is located on Moroccan soil will come in handy if you have any unforeseen circumstances during your trip. That is to say, it is information that you will have to handle when you are already doing your tour in Morocco.
The vast majority of the embassies of other countries in Morocco are in Rabat, as it is the capital of the country. But some countries have also opened consulates in other cities, especially Casablanca, the most populous.
Below is a list of the postal addresses of the embassies in Morocco of Anglo-Saxon and international tourism sending countries. In addition, on the
official website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
you will find a complete list of the other embassies, for example those of the many African countries that are represented on Moroccan territory:
