  • Marriage in the UK

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know if Moroccans visiting the UK with a tourist visa can marry during their stay? If yes, do they marry in the Moroccan consulate? Can they complete both the legal and religious marriage there? If you have any experience or information about this procedure please reply. Thanks in advance

    The Moroccan Consulate won't marry people who do not have stay here. Visitors to the UK are specifically excluded as they are not resident here or registered with the Consulate. They enforce this rule - it's not something they will ignore.

    Same applies with getting married in a Registry Office in the UK - the Visitor will need Home Office permission or a specific Marriage Visitor Visa.

    Advise your friend to stay in Morocco & apply for the correct visa.

        As far as I know, they've tightened up the rules about automatic passports for children born there there too so better be quicker before they change the marriage rules too

                Doesn't matter whether you're married here or there; the Rules are the same.

                The KEY thing you have to remember is that they are utter pigs in Casablanca. It is no understatement. The refusal rates on marriage visas are ridiculous; especially for men. Make absolutely sure your husband has absolutely every single paper he needs when he goes to the Consulate. He will also have to wait 3 months to be interviewed. Be very prepared. If there is anything dodgy in his immigration history, he'd better have a damn good explanation for it when he goes for interview because they will latch on it like the dogs that they are. Also needs to give as much information as possible in his answers. Finally, if there are any problems with the interpreter, raise it at the interview NOT later. In fact, he should kick up a big stink & request a new interpreter. They will refuse but you have to insist.

                The only way to deal with them is to know the Rules, know your rights and have your papers in order.

                      If you are Moroccan be true about the marriage, if you are not Moroccon be VERY careful who you are getting married to. Northern and Western cultures clash easily. Even if you are putting a lot of effort into to the relationship. The men can be angels until you get married then its a different story
