Travel to Morocco: What do i need to know?

Travelers have access to Moroccan territory, under certain conditions, if they have a vaccination pass or a negative PCR test at least 48 or 72 hours before the date of entry into Morocco. To implement this procedure, a classification of countries into two lists (A and B) has been adopted following the recommendations of the Ministry of Health.

What are the steps to follow for travelers from A-list countries?

The classification of countries into two lists was made following studies established by the scientific committee of the Ministry of Health to evaluate the epidemiological situation of each country. The A list includes all countries that can access Morocco and to which it is possible to travel.

Travelers from list A countries present a vaccination pass or certificate of vaccination to enter Morocco. The vaccines authorized in Morocco are : AstraZeneca, Sinopharm, Sputnik, Pfizer/BioNTech, Janssen, Covishield, Moderna, Sinovac. It should also be pointed out that the Moroccan vaccination pass is accepted in the European Union.

For people who could not be vaccinated or fully vaccinated, they must have a negative PCR test on boarding not older than 72 hours*. Both types of travelers must complete and sign the health form.

Children under 11 years of age are exempt from PCR screening.

What about maritime borders?

The transit points are the same as last year, namely Genoa in Italy and Sete and Marseille in France. In accordance with the sanitary conditions mentioned above, while specifying that in addition to the PCR test presented at the time of embarkation, the travelers will carry out another test on board and this to ensure the maximum sanitary safety for them and for their relatives.

* It is recommended for travelers wishing to access Morocco to contact their airline companies.

What are the steps to be taken by travelers from B-list countries?

List B countries are not included in the first list and are not affected by the relief measures available to List A countries. As the gradual opening of the borders is an evolving process, an update of these two lists is planned every two weeks.

Tourists coming from list B countries are classified in two categories. Vaccinated travelers or holders of a certificate attesting that the person is vaccinated with one of the vaccines accepted in Morocco are exempted from quarantine and must present only a negative PCR test dated less than 48 hours and a health form completed and signed before boarding.

Unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated persons must observe a 10-day controlled quarantine by presenting a negative PCR test less than 48 hours old, a completed and signed health form, a completed and signed declaration of honor for a 10-day confinement and a voucher confirming this confinement in one of the hotels previously designated by the Moroccan authorities. A PCR test is mandatory on the 9th day.

For Moroccan passengers and members of their families and foreigners residents in Morocco who have not been vaccinated or are incompletely vaccinated: self-isolation at home for 5 days is mandatory, with a screening test (rapid antigenic or PCR) on the 5th day. Children under the age of 11 are exempt from PCR testing.

What about people in transit?

A person from country B in transit through a country must complete the 10-day isolation. However, if the person is in transit for more than 10 days in country A, he or she does not need isolation in Morocco.
