 Start date  February 2008  End date  February 2012
 Owner  Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation
 Context  There are 3 million MRE (Moroccans living abroad) and about 2 million procedures per year. For certain citizens this can imply long journeys and/or multiple visits.
In order to meet these needs properly, the MAEC has introduced the e-Consulate portal.


  • Build a portal offering consular services
  • Federation of online consular sites and services (civil status, nationality, acts of Muslim notaries, certificates, attestations…)

Expected benefits

  • Improved “customer experience” (fewer visits, online procedures, tracking dossiers...)
  • Optimisation and automation of request handling (e.g. 73,000 birth certificates handled automatically)
  • Rationalisation of the wage bill



Short term: January 2011:

  • Registration by the citizen in person to create their electronic folder
  • Online appointment booking and request of consular services
  • Delivery of document by post

End of 2013:

  • Online Payment
  • Online delivery of documents not requiring physical presence
  • Civil status and nationality (excluding booklets of identity and civil status)
  • Certificates and attestations (residence, good conduct, disability, currency holdings, certificate of custom)
  • Making copies and translations
