Passports

Important Notice: Passport Fees Increase. Please click here for more information.

All Americans residing in Morocco should hold valid U.S. passports. No single document is more important to an American citizen residing overseas. We urge you not to let your passport expire nor delay in making application for renewal of a passport. We strongly encourage you to apply in advance of your anticipated travel dates.

Lost/stolen passports can be usually replaced the same day when an applicant comes to the U.S. Consulate General to report the loss, provided the case is a bona fide emergency and telecommunications with Washington are up and running.  In order to process an application for a replacement passport, regular or emergency, you will need to obtain a declaration de perte (declaration of loss) from the police station in the city where the loss occured.

All passport services are by appointment only.

You are required to use the Passport Wizard to complete your application.  Please bring your printed application to your interview. Handwritten applications will not be accepted. Making use of the Passport Wizard allows us to process passports more quickly, meaning they are returned to you earlier.

Be advised that forms must be completed and printed prior to your appointment.  If you do not bring the necessary completed form using the Passport Wizard, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment.  The only exception to this requirement will be if you are applying to replace a lost/stolen passport and are traveling within a week.

At this time, all applicants must apply for a passport in person.  Mail in options are only available in the United States.

The Consular Section receives passport applications and sends them electronically to the U.S. for processing.  Most passports are returned from the U.S. within two weeks.  To avoid delays, we ask that American citizens renew their passports in a timely manner, at least two or three months before the passport is due to expire. Please note: Once we receive your new passport it must be picked up within 90 days.
