The user-friendly eVisa platform, introduced on 10 July 2022, facilitates this convenient visa application process. Praised for its efficiency, the eVisa system has successfully processed 160,000 applications by the end of 2022, with nearly 150,000 eVisas issued. May 2023 witnessed a peak, handling close to 18,000 applications.

This initiative aligns with Morocco’s commitment to simplifying the visa application process and welcoming foreign nationals in a hospitable environment. The eVisa, valid for 180 days from the date of issuance, allows a single entry for a short stay of up to 30 days within Moroccan territory.
