Since 15 December 2009, a biometric passport was available for all new applicants. Moroccan citizens can now apply for a passport anytime, anywhere. Launched in tandem with the new enrollment program, a web portal outlining issuance requirements takes applicants through the procedure step by step, from the comfort of their keyboard. once proof of identity has been gathered, the applicant can fill in an online form to print and submit in person at the prefecture. Downloadable forms for passports and temporary passports can also print for handwritten completion. A PDF file describes accepted photo formats, while a convenient tracking function enables applicants to trace the various stages of processing.
