According to the bilateral Enhanced Immunities Agreement, each party shall grant the consular officials of the other party, and their families, the privileges and immunities provided for in Articles 29 to 36 of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.

Defense and security is also an area where Morocco and the US closely coordinate, with Bourita describing the cooperation as “a beacon of excellence.”

The US has a comparatively sizable Moroccan population. As of the 2000 U.S. Census 38,923 Americans stated they were of Moroccan descent. … As of 2009, 27,000 Moroccans (about 70% of the entire Moroccan American community) had immigrated between 1992 and 2002, with most of the Moroccan Americans living in large urban areas.
