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.

Our services


This Embassy does not deal with visa matters. For information on whether you need a visa to travel to the United Kingdom and how to apply, please see the UK Visas & Immigration

Living in Morocco

Information for British nationals living in Morocco who need information about services that are not provided by our consulates, but that you may find useful in specific circumstances.

Notarial and documentary services guide

Information about official documents, certificates, letters, and notes available at British consulates in Morocco.

Consular Fees List

A full list of Morocco consular fees.

Prisoner pack

Information and explanation of the legal and prison system in Morocco for British nationals.

Birth or death registration and marriage abroad

Information on how you can register a birth or death which occurred overseas, and legal documents for couples marrying or entering into civil partnerships abroad.

Emergency travel documents

Information about how to get an emergency travel document (ETD) if your UK passport is lost or stolen. If you have lost or had your passport stolen, you may be able to apply for an ETD. You can obtain an ETD at the British Embassy in Rabat, and also at the British Honorary Consulates in Marrakech and Agadir. You may make an appointment for this service at the British Embassy in Rabat, though this is not always necessary. Appointments are not required for ETDs to be issued at our Honorary Consulates. If your passport has been stolen you will need a police report before an ETD can be issued. You can make a police report at the nearest police station to the place where your passport was lost or stolen. You cannot obtain a police report in a different city. Although a police report is not required in order to obtain an ETD if you have lost your passport, you may require such a report to show the immigration authorities when leaving Morocco.

Passport applications

For information on how to apply for your first passport or renew an existing passport, please visit the overseas passport section of this website. Please note that our consular staff cannot deal with individual enquiries about passport applications.

Travel advice

Information on staying safe and avoiding problems when living or travelling abroad, with links to our embassies, high commissions and other diplomatic posts across the world.

Legalisation Service

How to get official confirmation that your UK public documentation is genuine so it can be accepted by foreign authorities. The UK does not require any documents to be legalised for use within the UK.

How else we can help

In addition to the services listed above we can also provide British nationals in Morocco requiring emergency consular assistance:

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
