travel in morocco after coronavirus
Morocco is a must-see destination for a weekend or a week’s vacation less than 4 hours flight from France. After a policy of strict closure of its borders due to the coronavirus, Morocco is opening up to tourism. Good news if you want to go to Marrakech, Casablanca, Fez, or Tangier during a city break or a week’s vacation. Be careful, however, before booking your plane tickets; certain conditions apply to enter Moroccan territory.
Has Morocco reopened its borders?
As mentioned by the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, since September 7, foreign citizens not subject to visa formalities can travel to Moroccan territory; therefore, it concerns 67 countries, including France. However, you must have previously booked in a hotel establishment and present a negative PCR test of fewer than 48 hours and a serological test upon boarding.
In recent weeks, the Kingdom has placed specific neighborhoods in partial quarantine (Tangier, Fez, Marrakech, Beni Mellal, Rabat, Sale). It has closed access to several beaches located on the coast between the regions of Tangier and Agadir. It is necessary to monitor the evolution of these measures carefully.
What are the distancing and hygiene measures in place in Morocco?
Suppose the state of emergency ended on September 10 in Morocco. In that case, wearing a compulsory mask remains compulsory, and police checks have been stepped up in recent weeks in various countries. Gatherings are banned, mosques, cinemas, and theaters remain closed, and restaurants and cafes are restricted to take out orders.
Have the airports reopened, with which company to go to Morocco?
Flights are now operated in both directions (europ to Morocco and Morocco to europ) by europian and Moroccan airlines, which should be contacted for all reservations and information. It is therefore no longer necessary to go through the French consulates to travel by plane. Moreover, it is the airlines Royal Air Maroc and Air Arabia Maroc, which confirmed via a press release that a simple hotel reservation or the invitation of a company allows travelers who do not need a visa (including French) to travel to Morocco since September 6.
