Where I am now in Georgia there is a backpacker from Iran who would like to travel to Morocco but thinks it is not possible for Iranian citizens since the countries do not have embassies in each other's territory.

But is this true? I expect it's not easy to look up on the Internet since most information will be in Arabic and/or Persian.

What must he do to obtain a visa etc?

To add to @mouviciel's answer, yes, Morocco and Iran do have an embassy presence in each others countries but here's the catch: you can only apply for a Moroccan visa in a country you aren't a citizen of only if you're a resident of that country. So in this case, your Iranian friend would need to be resident in Georgia to be able to apply for a visa in the embassy there; otherwise, he needs to apply for a Moroccan visa back in Iran.

I found this out when doing research for my own Moroccan visa issues.

Oh no so he has the same problem I have with a Russian visa! I'll let him know tomorrow - thanks. –  hippietrail Nov 6 '11 at 20:05
    
FYI, as of now, Iran and Morocco have no embassies any more. They had problems and closed the embassies. –  MeNoTalk Mar 1 '13 at 2:30

Bah well that seems pretty easy after all. Maybe he meant there's no Moroccan embassy here in Tbilisi but we can deal with that I think. Thanks for your answer! –  hippietrail Nov 6 '11 at 16:15
    
My friend thinks there was some kind of change with the Moroccan embassy/ambassador in Tehran recently that makes it not possible to get a visa at the moment. But I gave him the links so he can chase down more details. –  hippietrail Nov 7 '11 at 9:04
