Written by FDM

Many weddings have been cancelled due to the sudden lockdown, thus the brides and grooms found themselves prevented by the circumstances. The Ministry of Justice has just launched an online portal to apply for marriage authorization online.

The portal for authorization to marry online is one of the main pillars adopted by the Ministry of Justice in order to activate its strategies for modernizing the judicial administration, reads the ministry’s website. This portal allows you to make requests in order to obtain authorization to marry in most of the courts of the kingdom.

Morocco thus follows in the footsteps of the United Arab Emirates, which recently authorized distance marriages via a portal put online by the Ministry of Justice. The cleric responsible for concluding the marriage can preside over the ceremony online, ensuring the identity of the bride and groom and witnesses, according to the UAE news agency WAM.
