Detailed Tourist Information

Starting June 15, 2021, international flights to Morocco will be able to resume and travelers will, under some conditions, have access to Moroccan territory if they have a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test at least 48 hours before the date of entry into Moroccan territory.

Following the Moroccan government’s decision to allow Travelers to enter Morocco by air, a number of conditions must be met.

To carry out this approach, a classification of countries into two lists (A and B) has been adopted in accordance with the recommendations of the Ministry of Health.

For travelers from list A (https://visitmorocco.com/sites/default/files/list-a-en.pdf), a vaccination pass or a certificate attesting that the person is fully vaccinated is required. For those who could not be vaccinated, they must have a negative PCR test at boarding not exceeding 48 hours. Children under the age of 11 are exempt.

As for tourists coming from countries listed in list B (https://visitmorocco.com/sites/default/files/list-b-en.pdf), they must obtain an exceptional travel authorization beforehand. Upon arrival, they must present a negative PCR test dated within 48 hours of the date of entry into the national territory and undergo a mandatory 10-day isolation.
 

Lockdown Details

The Government of Morocco has put into place a “Health State of Emergency” until August 10, 2021. This is likely to be extended.

There is a nationwide curfew in place between the hours of 11:00 PM and 4:30 AM. Effective June 7, individuals who are vaccinated and have a vaccine digital passport issued by the Moroccan Government (www.liqahcorona.ma) can move freely after 11:00 PM. Such individuals will not be subject to travel restrictions. Those not vaccinated and enrolled in the government’s digital vaccination passport program must still have written permission from the Moroccan authorities for movements during curfew hours and to travel between cities/regions.
