Advantages of Consulate registration
It is highly recommended for Moroccan nationals residing in Canada to register at their earliest convenience with the Consulate General of the Kingdom of Morocco in Montreal. This formality will allow:
- The consulate to better know the Moroccan community that it is strives to protect, administer and assist in times of need.
- An easier administrative process for Moroccan nationals residing in Canada who desire to obtain specific documents eg. CNIE, biometric passport, family book, procuration, attestations ect.
Kindly note that registration with the Consulate General is mandatory prior to any consular services. Registration takes effect immediately and provides you with a consular I.D. that you may use as proof of your registration with Consulate General. Please note however that while the consular ID is required for any consular service, it is not a formal identification document and cannot replace the CNIE or the passport.
Further, any major change in the situation or status of a Moroccan national or his family has to be communicated to the Consulate General in order for his file to be updated. This can be done either through this link « online update of the Consular file » or via an email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Email communications are the fastest and most reliable means of keeping yourselves updated on your files and requests to the Consulate General. However, you may also verify in person during your visits to the Consulate.
Any individual who intends to register with the Consulate General has the following options :
- Present themselves at the Consulate General in Montreal along the original documents listed hereafter,
- If you reside outside the Greater Montreal Area you may send us the original copies of the required documents by secured mail through Canada Post with an Xpress-post prepaid return envelope so that we may send back your registration consular ID to your home address. Please note that we do not require the originals of the Permanent Resident Card, National ID Card and Passport.
