Morocco – COVID-19 Entry Requirements

Morocco is the last traveler-accessible country in North Africa to reopen to tourists: Egypt started welcoming travelers three weeks ago and Tunisia opened its borders in June. 

Morocco has reopened its borders to business travelers and foreigners who have confirmed hotel reservations.  Citizens and residents of Morocco and, as of September 6, foreign nationals of visa-exempt countries with reservations with Moroccan hotels or travel agencies and business people invited by Moroccan companies are allowed to enter and depart. 

This easing of restrictions applies to travelers from 67 countries who are exempt from visas, which includes the European Union, the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

The Government of Morocco (GOM) has established pre-arrival COVID-19 testing requirements for all travelers entering Morocco. Travelers entering Morocco must complete a PCR test (of less than 48 hours) and a serological test (can be outside 48 hours), with printed results to present on request at check-in and to GOM officials on arrival.  Note: Children under 12 years old are not required to complete these tests.

Travelers should be aware that regional or local authorities may put into place (sometimes with little notice) travel or other restrictions aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19. 

Moroccan authorities extend the Health State of Emergency until October 10. The city of Casablanca currently has a curfew in place from 10:00 pm to 5:00 am. Authorities announced individuals found to be violating social distancing and mandatory face mask measures will be fined 300 dirhams (33 USD). Face masks remain mandatory in all public spaces nationwide.

Please contact the Moroccan embassy or the nearest Consulate for updated information before booking travel.
