MOROCCO

IMPACT – MEDIUM

What is the change? Foreign nationals applying for or renewing residency permits are now required to fill out a new form with additional personal details and submit it to the main police station in Casablanca.

What does the change mean? The form is comparable to a resume in asking about educational background and work experience, but also seeks information about the applicant’s family members, religion, political membership and previous travel.

  • Implementation time frame: Immediate.
  • Visas/permits affected: Residency permits.
  • Who is affected: All foreign nationals applying for new or renewal residency permits.
  • Business impact: The form adds another step in the residency permit process.

BAL Analysis: To avoid delay, all pending and future applications for residence permits should include the new form.
