Notarial Services

The American Citizens Services Unit of the Consular Section performs notarial services by appointment only.  All appointments must be made through our website; we do not schedule appointments by phone.

Notarial services are available only at the consular section of the U.S. Consulate General in Casablanca for U.S. and non-U.S. citizens with valid government-issued identification.  In most cases the notarized document will be ready the same day.  Only certain documents can be notarized at the U.S. Consulate General in Casablanca.  Please consult the list below for more information:

To have a document notarized, you must appear in person with the following:

  1. Valid passport or photo identification card.
  2. The document(s) to be notarized.  Please DO NOT SIGN the document(s) until you are asked to do so in front of a consular officer.
  3. Witnesses, if required by your document.  Consulate staff cannot act as witnesses.
  4. Fees.  Notarial services cost $50.00 U.S. dollars or equivalent in local currency for each use of the notarial seal, payable in U.S. or Moroccan cash or major credit card.

Consular officers are prohibited from giving legal advice or acting as witnesses.  If you have any questions about the contents of the documents and the implications of your signing them, the ACS unit can provide a list of Moroccan lawyers for you to consult, or you may wish to consult an attorney in the United States.
