Great blog and site Amanda! I visit Marrakech frequently - Im just back from a short trip there and back again at the end of September. I currently have a photography exhibition in the Henna Art Cafe if you have time to visit it and have a cool drink with Lori and her team.

Keep up the great blog posts - I always look forward to reading them as they are always really informative!

None that I know of. It's pretty straight forward you just need to go to the main police station to get what documents your local precinct requires depending on the category you are applying under. I'm sure there are lawyers that would be happy to take your money but I don't know how productive it would end up being.

Hi can I ask All the documents you list here to get a Moroccan residence permit is the same as the documents I produced to marry my Moroccan husband. I have our marriage contract in English and Arabic I have my police record number (dossier number) I've been through the whole process of register office, family court, police check in rebat, embassy in rebat, doctors certificate, income checked, had all my papers translated. Do I really have to do it all again Or does the marriage contract act as evidence that everything is good. As if it was not good I could not marry Please could someone help me with this ??

Yes you really need to give them everything again. And when you apply for the renewal of the residency permit you must produce all the same documents again. I totally get the frustration!

Hi Amanda.

Just want to start off by saying you have a great blog!

Could you please answer a question for me regarding a carte sejour; When it came to the background check, it wasn't required that it be from the U.S.? Unfortunately the request I made for one was mailed to the wrong address and never recieved, so I am trying to find a solution. Hopefully I can get a background check from Rabat. Thanks a lot!

I had a police check from my state in the US (I just got it from my local police precinct) and provided that along with the other paperwork. I know other people have needed an FBI check but I was never asked for this. You should double check with your local office- from whichever city in Morocco you'll be applying as it can vary city to city.
