I will be going to Morocco in 4 weeks to get married. I know all my papers must be translated into arabic.

Does it make a difference if i have the translated done here in the usa or do they need to be translated in morocco?

there are many sites that i can have this done on. I just know that morocco is very different on their papers.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Translations can be done anywhere, by anyone that is competent in both languages. They sign a simple statement which becomes the ' certification '. Use the search block at the top of the page.

***** Since this question is about getting married in Morocco, not the visa process itself, moved from K3 forum to Middle East regional forum for country specific answers ******

Shellie,

When my husband and I got married I scanned and emailed all of my documents to him ahead of time. It was more affordable to have them translated in Morocco. The translater held them until I arrived with the originals and then released them to us.

Shellie,

I just got married in Morocco in May. In Marrakech to be exact. Are you planning on being there for awhile ? The process takes several weeks. It took us about 3 weeks and we were on top of each step in the process along the way.

I was already in Morocco, had been living there for nearly a year, so I had all my documents translated there.

If you have any questions about the process there, I'd be happy to help.

Congratulations on your impending marriage.

I appreciate all the help here. my only issue this trip is that i will only be there for a total of 9 days.

so i think this may be a problem.

my finance did his research and found out according to morocian law that once we have done a certain part, that i can give power of

attorney to a relative to be (me) as a stand in to finish the remaining process. Has anyone ever heard of doing this. He says it states

this specifically in the laws.

I will do the process of scanning and sending him all my papers

Questions:

1.) What is the attestation of nationality?

2.) the international report from the minister of justice: what does the paper of demand need on it?

3.)do i need a copy of my tax's from last year. I will have a letter from work stating basic information?

4.) Does everything need to be done in Casa and Rabat.?

they make you jump through the hoops here.

I appreciate the answers .

thanks so much.

I hope everyone has a great day.

You will also need to set an appointment on-line for the Consulate in Casablanca to get some documents from them - the statement of singlehood and I think the attestation of Nationality that you spoke of.

Shellie,

You make an appt at the US Embassy in Casablanca. It's 500 dirhams for the certificate of Nationality and 500 dirhams for your eligibility to marry. Basically, they need your passport and if you've ever been married before, a divorce decree. You will swear in front of them that you are eligible to marry. They will give you two pieces of paper , one for each certification.

You will then go to Rabat, to the ministry of Justice. The paperwork you receive there is to show that you are not being sued or involved in anything in Morocco court-wise. You will need to purchase a 10 dirham stamp and take your passport along with a copy of the biographical page and a copy of your entry stamp page into Morocco. I'd be there when they open at 9 and you can usually pick it up the same day. While we were waiting for that we went to the Bureau des Estrangers' where they will certify your paperwork from the embassy. It's 80 dirhams to have them certified. When you get that completed and get your paperwork from the Ministry of Justice, you can go back to wherever your fiance's lives to finalize everything else. My husband is from Marrakech, so we went back there ---we had to go to the family court, get approval from the judge, police investigation, and then back to the court to get a paper to take to the adoul. There is no way you can do this 9 days. As I said in my previous post, it took us about 3 weeks and we literally were on top of every move everyone made for days, especially at the police department to make sure no one dropped the ball and we got shuffled to the back with everyone else. My husband is still in Marrakech and would be happy to help you and your fiance' in this process if you need it. We just got married at the end of May so he's still fresh on the process. Just let me know. I am not sure about the proxy thing. I know you HAVE to be here for the police interview and I had to be there for the adoul, who issues the marriage certificate.

We completed the process in 9 days, but hubby knew some people on the police force to move that part along quicker..... It can be done, but it is difficult. We were on-the-go the entire time.

I must add, that although we completed the process in 9 days, that is rare and really difficult. Usually it takes about 3 weeks. I had only 12 days there and I was very worried we wouldn't make it.

I don't know if this is relevant or not... may not be... but was a thought that came to my mind. When you were asking about getting the documents translated here vs. in Morocco. . Here it would be simply translated to proper arabic language, would it not? However, if translated there, it would be translated into Moroccan arabic which is a different dialect. Would that be better?

Reason I am bringing it up, I told hubby once I wanted to take a arabic speaking class. Hubby says, "we do not speak arabic, we speak Moroccan arabic, so even if you did some ppl would not understand you." Which takes me to my thought..... if translated into proper arabic would they accept it, and would it be understood?

Also, second thought. .. you can ensure that its translated correctly, since english is not so easy to translate in all cases.

Was I totally off the mark on this or what there atleast one intelligent point? Lol idk... just wondering. If I'm wrong please chime in... lol
