0 136

The national police (DGSN) announced that it will launch, starting this Monday, an exceptional operation to establish electronic national identity cards for the benefit of members of the Moroccan community residing abroad, who are currently in Morocco due to the application of the state of health emergency and who are required to renew their biometric passports to be able to reach their countries of residence.

In a statement, the DGSN said that this operation is aimed at renewing the identity cards for the benefit of all Moroccan citizens habitually residing abroad, since it is a basic and reference document in the procedure for renewing biometric passports that expired during the period when the Kingdom’s border posts were closed due to the precautionary measures adopted to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The DGSN will make every effort to provide all the facilities needed to carry out this exceptional operation, added the same source, specifying that it has also begun coordinating operations with the competent government services to facilitate the obtaining of certificates of consular registration for the benefit of citizens who are unable to obtain this document, which serves as proof of residence.

Following the example of the operation conducted for the benefit of baccalaureate examination candidates, the DGSN affirmed that it is committed to meet and comply with all health conditions and social distancing rules in order to guarantee the safety of citizens and police officers, in accordance with its obligations relating to the application of the state of health emergency to combat the spread of Covid-19, the statement concluded.
