Hey Officebum,

This is something I am living through and have been for the past year. The gov is closing down on the amount of working permits and residency cards issued to foreigners.

Basically, there are various statuses under which you can apply, if you can't find the list and the requirements let me know, I can help. There is a center for investment called the CRI, they will help process your application, so it's worth seeking them out.

You can get your visa extended for a month by submitting a bunch of paper and proving that you can sustain yourself money-wise. If you start a company or a business here though, you should find they are very receptive to investments possibilities.

Good luck,
pat

If you have a Moroccan marriage license, you can apply for residence as the spouse of a Moroccan national. If not, based on a contract job (but this is not easy), or about 10,000 dollars in an account here with proof of regular transfers into it. And, as patkack says, you can start a business. Again, that can be expensive. To start an SARL, you need 100,000 dh capital and you need to hire a fudiciare.

Redcity,

The capital for an SARL has recently been reduced from 100.000 Dhs to 10.000 Dhs in order to encourage entrepreneurship. If you, or anyone else, want a reliable Moroccan consultant in starting a company I know a highly competent person. Just drop me a line and I will forward his information.
