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.

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.
