It must be valid for 6 months at least and it is important that you always take it with you. Visitors from other countries may apply for their visas at their consular offices.

On arrival in Morocco by plane, entry formalities are simple, but it is imperative to fill an entrance form where you must state, among other details, your visit purpose, your job and the hotel where you are staying.

If you are travelling by private car, you will need your driver’s license and the Green Card, the international compulsory insurance certificate. Your insurance company will provide you with a Green Card.

It is also advisable to request a medical insurance with any company covering illness and transfer to your home country, because medical assistance to foreign people is not free in Morocco.

Responsible tourism

In our interaction with the people we meet we must always show a responsible attitude. In this sense, it is not advisable to give presents to children, let alone offering money to them. However, you may donate clothes or educational equipment to schools, local associations or trusted community members.

Also bear in mind that before taking a picture of a member of the community, it is advisable to ask for permission.

Our guide or our driver will always provide advice in the event of such a situation.

Currency

The dirham is the official currency in Morocco. The exchange rate is about 11 dirham: 1 euro. You don’t need to exchange currency in your home country. You may exchange it in Morocco. Usually it is more expensive to buy currency than selling it. So, it will always be better to exchange currency in Morocco.

Health care tips

Vaccines:

There are no required vaccines for international travellers visiting Morocco, but it is advisable that your official vaccination chart is up to date.

Climate and dressing:

  • Choose natural fibres (cotton, linen, etc…). Bring lightweight loose garments in light colours. You will also need some long sleeve pieces. Shoes have to be very comfortable. In winter you will need warm clothes.
  • In order to balance liquids and mineral salts lost by heat and effort, you will have to drink lots of bottled water, tea and beverages containing mineral salts, such as fruit and legume juices, or vegetable soup.
  • Sunlight exposure may cause serious conditions, especially in clear skin people. You may prevent this by using a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen products.

Medical kit:

It is always useful to take a disinfectant, basic health care equipment, sunscreen products, insect repellent, and basic drugs, such as analgesics, antihistamines and antidiarrhoeics.

If you have any allergy problems, bear in mind the destination country season and the chance that you may experience a crisis during your trip.

If you are under medical treatment, be sure to bring enough medication for the whole journey.

Personal hygiene:

Some accommodations don’t provide towels, gel or shampoo. You may bring them from your home country or buy them in Morocco.
