Procedure

Spouses must submit a copy of the civil marriage certificate to the Moroccan consular  services in the place of establishment of the marriage certificate or the place of residence of  the spouses. In the absence of consular services, a copy of the marriage certificate is sent to  the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (Directorate of Consular and  Social Affairs). The Ministry then sends the copy to the civil registrar and the family justice  section to the place of birth of each spouse. If the spouses or one of them are not born in  Morocco, the copy is sent to the family justice section of Rabat and to the Prosecutor at the  court of first instance in Rabat.
In case the civil marriage certificate does not mention the two Muslim witnesses, an additive act, called "Ishhad Moulhaq" (Annexation Witness), must be established by the Adouls at the consular services and annexed to the said marriage certificate before being sent to the Moroccan authorities.
