If your country is on the list

  • You do not need a tourist visa to enter the Kingdom of Morocco and may stay up to 90 days.
  • You will still need to produce your passport as well as your return ticket for entry into Morocco. You should make sure to have an empty page in your passport for the stamp and be sure that it is acquired upon arrival. Your passport only needs to be valid for the duration of your visit. No additional period of validity beyond this is required.
  • Children 16 years of age and younger do not need their own passport but their photographs must be included in their parent’s passports.
  • You do not need a Morocco tourist visa if you are a transit passenger taking a connecting flight within 24 hours with proper documentation and you are not leaving the airport.
  • Visitors intending to stay in Morocco longer than 90 days, should request permission to extend the duration of their stay, at the nearest Police Precinct to their place of residence in Morocco. Or… exit the country to Ceuta or elsewhere, and re-enter for another 90 days.
  • If your passport is valid for less than 90 days you may be questioned on your plans for leaving the country and a valid airline flight ticket will help in this respect.

  • You are advised not to make firm travel plans (flight and hotel bookings) before obtaining your visa.

Keep an eye on your passport

If this is your first time traveling, passports are extremely valuable so one must ensure these are kept safe at all times. If this is lost or mislaid, you may experience tremendous inconvenience; do not expect to receive special treatment because you are a foreign visitor.

If the loss of the passport is due to your neglect, you must accept the consequences, but do not despair. Make a note of Embassy contact details for your particular country.

Make photocopies of all passports showing your photograph and passport details from the personal information page, usually at the rear of the document and keep these safe as they will be just as valuable should the passport be lost/stolen/mislaid etc. Even a photocopy will contain all vital information and identify your nationality.
