Salam! not sure how many people i used to know are still around but i haven't been on the board for over a year now so lots of you won't probably remember me Smiling Smiley

Anyway, i hope you're all well. I have a question and i hope someone will have an answer.

I will be travelling to Morocco in September with my 6 month old baby who has never been there before. He has a British passport and i have a Moroccan one and i was wondering if this would cause us any problems (the fact that he has a Foreign passport). I have tried to get him a Moroccan passport in the consulate here but it's a long and complex procedure so we gave up and instead we just registered him. The British passport doesn't mention the name of either parent and i was wondering if they would stop me and ask me to prove that i am his mother?? should i take his birth certificate with me?

If anyone has had a similar experience your advice will be much appreciated. Thanks

No need to worry,a British passport is fine,sometimes is even better.
You'll get sniggering remarks from the coppers at immigration but
let me assure you,some of them will give an arm & a leg to have
a British passport.
A birth certificate is always useful just like a marriage one.
Bon Voyage.

I don't travel with my Moroccan passport at all infact once it finishes I will never renew it. Any documentation you will take with you proving the babies ID is a plus nine out of ten there will be no problem. My main concern is the baby's well being; September Morocco is still boiling hot for a six month old baby its like being in an oven.
May be I am just worrying too much, forgive my comment but still keep it in mind; good to have you back

Thanks bootmashoot, i totally agree on your comment. The sniggering would certainly be due to frustration so we can't blame really Smiling Smiley

Adds, you might be right about the weather but i'm sure we'll be fine. He survived the heatwave of the last few weeks in England so he's hopefully immune to hot weather Smiling Smiley
