Welcome to the official portal of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco to the United States of America. It has been my privilege to be appointed by His Majesty King Mohammed VI as His Ambassador to the United States since December 2011. I am proud to continue in the long line of service since the establishment of the official relations between our two countries in 1787. Morocco and the United States have a long history of friendly relations and are bound by long standing political, economic and commercial ties that can be traced as far back as to the 18th century. Morocco has the oldest treaty of friendship with the United States, and our two nations have stood side by side ever since my country became the first in the world to recognize the independence of the United States of America in 1777.
Today we cooperate at several fronts. Morocco is the first non industrialized nation to have signed a Free Trade Treaty with the United States. This website is to serve those who are eager to become better acquainted with Morocco, with its history, with its institutions and most importantly with the political, economic, and social advances taking place today in the Kingdom. I hope this website would stimulate Americans to visit my country for leisure or business. Morocco is one of the world’s most interesting and hospitable countries, rich in history, architecture, scenery and culture. In this website, the Moroccan community will also find all the useful information related to the formalities for their registration with the Embassy, their marital status situation, and the issuing of a wide range of Moroccan documents they might need while living in the US. I am confident this website will become a valuable tool in promoting mutual understanding between our two peoples and I welcome your suggestions and your questions.
