Morocco: Online Portal Introduced for Work Permit Applications
Effective June 1, 2017, employers must submit all Work Permit applications through an online portal. Manual submission of the current forms will no longer be accepted.
The Ministry of Labor and Professional Integration has announced that all employers seeking to sponsor foreign nationals for employment in Morocco must register with an online portal Taechir to obtain log-in credentials to be able to submit and track of all Work Permit applications. Manual submission of the current forms will no longer be accepted.
Upon completion of the online application process, the system will generate three copies of E-Work Permit forms which must be printed, stamped and signed by the foreign national and the authorized signatory of the sponsoring entity. Both signatures must be certified by a Notary Public or legalized by the respective Moroccan consular post abroad. Once finalized, the original forms and all documentary requirements must be submitted to the Moroccan Department of Employment for approval.
What This Means for Employers and Foreign Nationals
Effective June 1, 2017, employers will be required to submit and track all Work Permit applications through an online portal. Manual filings will no longer be accepted.
