British Ambassador to Morocco
We are responsible for all aspects of bilateral relations between the British and Moroccan governments, and for informing the British government about developments in Morocco. We deal with political, commercial, security and economic questions of interest to the UK and Morocco.
The embassy and its consular sections in Rabat, Tangier, Marrakech and Agadir look after the interests of British people living in, or visiting, Morocco. The Consulate-General in Casablanca, together with the economic and commercial section of the embassy, provides a wide range of services to British and Moroccan business and investment.
We manage projects in partnership with the Moroccan government and civil society, which aim to support Morocco’s political reform process. The British Council handles cultural and educational affairs.
All visa applications must be made online and an appointment booked to visit our UK Visa Application Centre to enrol your biometric information. You can check if you require a visa and apply online through the UK Visas & Immigration pages. Once the UK visa online application process has been completed customers must also register their details on UK Visa Application Centre website. The UK Visa Application Centre is located at:
9 Rue Al Koufa
Avenue Moulay Youssef
The UK Visa Application Centre offers a range of Added Value Services such as a Priority Visa Service. Further details on all of the services offered, including eligibility criteria, is available on the UK Visa Application Centre website. Completed applications will be sent to the Decision Making Centre in Paris for processing. Application centre staff will play no part in the decision making process. For further details on the application process and processing times please visit the UK Visas & Immigration pages.

- provide information about transferring funds
- help people with mental illness
- offer support and help in a range of other cases, such as child protection and abductions in Morocco, kidnappings or someone who is missing abroad and how to make a missing persons report
- provide consular assistance to British nationals who are victims of rape or serious sexual assault or any other serious crime
- help in contacting your family or friends when you are not able to do yourself because you are ill or in hospital

- make special arrangements in cases of terrorism, civil disturbances or natural disasters
- offer support and information when a British national is detained or arrested in Morocco
What our embassy cannot do for you
Although we try to help British nationals in a wide range of situations, we cannot:
- get you out of prison, prevent the local authorities from deporting you after your prison sentence, or interfere in criminal or civil court proceedings
- help you enter a country, for example, if you do not have a visa or your passport is not valid, as we cannot interfere in another country’s immigration policy or procedures
- give you legal advice, investigate crimes or carry out searches for missing people, although we can give you details of people who may be able to help you in these cases, such as English-speaking lawyers
- get you better treatment in hospital or prison than is given to local people
- pay any bills or give you money (in very exceptional circumstances we may lend you some money from public funds, which you will have to pay back)
- make travel arrangements for you, or find you work or accommodation
- make business arrangements on your behalf
