Morocco travel: what entry conditions?


In Morocco, tourism professionals have learned to be philosophical and flexible. The government’s instructions have immediate application and no announcement is made beforehand, whether on the closure of the airspace or the new protocols.
And this Thursday, November 18, 2021, there is something new, since the Ministry of Health and Social Protection has just unveiled the Health provisions for international travel.

While France still remains stuck in the famous B list, a ranking depending on the level of risk in the face of the health crisis, new measures apply to French travelers. This update follows the lifting of the curfew and the strengthening of border controls.

Morocco: two telephone numbers to be provided to the authorities

Basically, international travelers arriving in Morocco will have to submit to a common protocol. So they will have to download or complete (the document will be distributed on board the plane or at the airport) a health form to be given to the authorities.
In it, it will be essential to provide the passenger’s address and two telephone numbers to allow the Moroccan authorities to be able to reach him at any time during his stay. The passenger must be reachable during the 10 days following his arrival on Moroccan national territory.

In addition, travelers will have to undergo a double temperature check upon arrival. This step concerns all passengers, vaccinated or not. Double temperature control is systematic. Authorities can carry out random checks using antigen testing. Finally, passengers must respect the measures in force in Morocco, as part of the fight against the pandemic. Wearing a mask is mandatory, as is physical distancing and regular hand washing.

Travel to Morocco: what are the conditions for the French?

Unfortunately for French travelers, since our country is on list B, other conditions are added to those detailed previously. Thus, in addition to having to provide a certificate attesting that the “person is fully vaccinated against SARS-Cov-2 (the coronavirus)“, French passengers must present the result of a PCR test.

They will therefore have to provide a PCR test of less than 48 hours (time between sampling and boarding).
Attention, for people who are not resident in Morocco or of Moroccan nationality, in the event of a positive test, it will not be possible for them to access the national territory.

Note that if in the past, unvaccinated travelers were mentioned in the provisions for entering Morocco, this is no longer the case. We deduce that only fully vaccinated travelers can therefore enter. For them, access to Moroccan territory is no longer authorized.
For the time being, children under 12, coming from a country on list B including France, are exempt from the PCR test of less than 48 hours and from the complete vaccination schedule (update of November 22, 2021) .

As a reminder, Morocco is classified in orange by the French government. This classification limits restrictions for travel.
