The U.S. Consulate General in Casablanca, which dates back to 1878, is an integral part of the U.S. Mission in Morocco supporting U.S policy and protecting American interests. Today the Consulate includes elements from the U.S. Department of State, the Foreign Commercial Service (FCS), and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
In carrying out U.S. policy, the Consulate General also supports Morocco’s development and strengthens bilateral relations through a wide variety of technical and humanitarian assistance as well as educational and cultural programs. The Consulate also provides country-wide consular services to American citizens and visa services to Moroccans seeking to travel or immigrate to the United States. The Consulate’s Public Affairs Office advises the Consul General on public diplomacy matters, including media relations. In addition, it is responsible for the U.S. government’s information and cultural programs in Casablanca and southern Morocco. The Consulate’s Commercial Section is part of a global network of trade specialists dedicated to supporting U.S. commercial interests around the world. The Consulate’s Department of Homeland Security Office is charged with overseeing U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Furthermore, the Consulate’s Political and Economic sections, in conjunction with their Embassy Rabat colleagues, analyze and report on political and economic matters that affect U.S. interests and convey U.S. Government views on issues to Moroccan officials and solicit Morocco’s support and cooperation when appropriate.
