Hi

I should be able to help with this as I've just completed the whole process and was married in Agadir last Friday!

The process of marrying a Moroccan as a foreign national is complicated and pricey so be warned!

1st I applied for a police record check in the UK (I'm English). This cost me £10 and I applied for it at my local police station. It takes about 2 weeks to be processed. Then I should have applied for a cetificate of eligibility to marry at my local registery office. But I left it too late and paid the price of having to later request one from the British Consulate in Casablanca and boy do they know how to charge! I then obtained a letter from my work confirming that I was in full time employment and my salary. I took all these documents along with my birth cert to Morocco.

When I got there I took the best step that I beleive anyone can take when dealing with these matters and employed an English speaking translater Mr Brahim Beneyamhim from Agadir (details on avail on request). The cost of Brahim's service was really reasonable and worth every penny or Dirham if you like. He advised me to get a medical certifcate and arranged for me to convert to Islam ( a requirement for men marrying Maroc women). I then went to the Brit Consulate in Casablanca. Where they gave me for the fee of £160 an Affidavit of Nationality and Eligibility to Marry and also the statement of honour that I have never married before. I then had to go to Rabat, Annexe du Ministère des Affaires Etrangères to have these 3 docs certified. This cost the price of 3 stamps but was hassle as the Annex is a confusing place. You need to go there in the morning drop your papers off and recieve a queing ticket. You then come back later in the morning when told and have your 3 docs stamped and certified. Its best to have a maroc speaking friend with you on this one.

After that I went to the Ministère de la Justice Section des Marriages in Rabat and obtained a Maroc police check. This was completed in a day and cost 20MDH.

I then took all these papers back to Brhim in Agadir where he translated them all into Arabic. He also wrote a letter to the judge requesting the marraige. He charged me a mere 900MDH for this service and it was worth every penny. My fiancee then had to go to her father and gain a letter of approval, a police check, cert of never having married and a cert of her adress. Brahim put all these papers together with loads of passport photos of us and made about 5/6 files.

We then took the papers to the local family court where the court clerk started the admin process. As I did not have a lot of time to wait I chose to fast track the process by offering the clerk a fee (read into this as you may!). This really helped as the clerk ensured that the Wakeel who signs the 1st step got my papers immediately as opposed to them sitting around forever. We then were interviewed by the Wakeel who signed the papers and told us to take them to the local police for checks.

We then went to the local police who interviewed us and again we chose to 'fast track'the process which ensured that it was all done that day instead of taking maybe a couple of weeks. We then took the papers back to the court where a judge signed them off. Then we went to the court apointed Adould who married us. My bride requested a Dowry which I put a down payment on at the Adouls office. This is more a custom than anything else. We were then given a reciept for the Marriage cert that arrives next week! And now we are married.

We then had a big do at my wifes parents home!

If you need anymore details jsut ask and best wishes for your marriage!

Converting to Islam, is this also a requirement for women marrying Maroc men?

Thanks!

No, Islam considers a child's religious heritage to eminate from the mother. Therefore only men wishing to marry Muslim woman are required to convert. Thereby ensuring the child's faith is safeguarded.

First, Find out why they won't give you the blessing and fix it. Become Muslim if not already. Say Shahaada in front of his parents and read the first surah of the Quran to his Father or have his father help you read it. Islam is the answer. Peace be upon you.

Hi Claire

I got married in Decemeber and it took me 21 days in total to get married but a few days were wasted as me and my husband didn't know some things so we had to go from Rabat and Marrakech a few times! lol. You get your certificate of Nationality from the British Embassy in Casablanca and if i remember rightly its £30. Any questions feel free to ask. <img src="[www.africaguide.com]]

Marriage in Morocco
May 26, 2008 08:01AM
Hi

thanks for that message, i'm just about to go through it all too. My fiance is from Fez but now living and working in Agadir.

I had a few questions for you (or anyone), if you wouldn't mind having a look:

- Could I have the details of your translator please? He sounds very reasonable!

- Why go to Casablanca for those papers? I thought they are from the consulate in Rabat, which is the same town as the Annexe du Ministère des Affaires Etrangères. Or is it only from Casablanca?

- I am a born muslim girl from the UK, do you know what document I can give to prove that I was born a muslim please? I've never heard of that before.

- how much did you give to 'fast track' the processes?

- Do you have to get married on the same day?? Do you know if it is possible to marry in a different town? Although my fiance is from Fez (residency) I love the idea of getting married in Agadir.

And last of all, how long did the whole process take for you in Morocco?

Many thanks for your help

Shama


Payslips
May 26, 2008 08:05AM
Oh yes, just another question.

The British Embassy site says that for the Marriage visa application, 6 months of payslips should be shown. Do you think three would be acceptable? (Three months is required for some other countries)

I was living in Morocco for a few months, and only started working in March this year.

Many thanks

marrying in morocco
June 25, 2008 01:40PM
Hello:

i am a canadian citizen, indian by birth. i met this moroccon guy on the internet, from #####. we have been talking only for a couple weeks and such, but we click really well and i am thinking of visiting him in october. he has already proposed marriage to me, but i am actually really scared for some reason. a few people here told me that in morocco men are always just harrassing the women and that the only way they can get out of the country is by marrying someone. of course, cannot be true for every person - but can someone please give me insight to the culture and men in morocco? i am totally inexperienced with this whole marrying outside of my country concept and have no idea what to expect, what to be careful of.

i do not mean any offence to anyone, but as a woman, i am just very skeptical.

please provide some guidance.
thank you
Marrying in Morocco
June 26, 2008 08:12AM
Hi

It's natural to be scared when someone you barely know proposes marriage to you!

I think if you are serious then you can think about visiting him before considering marriage seriously. It's much easier to click online than it is in person.

From my experiences, Moroccan people are open to welcoming other cultures, but I guess this depends on the person.

I have also heard a lot about moroccan men who marry just for a visa, it really does happen.

But as you said, there are plenty of genuine love stories out there too. People are the same from every country, you get some great ones and some who just look out for themselves!

Kind regards and good luck
