Morocco visa requirements

Travel visa and passport requirements in Morocco

Morocco is a welcoming destination, but there are some things to do to prepare for your trip. Most travelers who wish to visit Morocco can do so without applying for a visa if your trip does not exceed three months. However, all travelers must arrive with a passport that is valid for at least six months from the time you enter Morocco.
Your stay as a visitor is limited to three months but can be extended at any Moroccan police station. Visiting areas outside recognized tourist areas is not recommended for security reasons. It is well known that travel rules can change without the public being informed. We recommend that you check with Travel Exploration or the Moroccan Embassy in the United States for current regulations before traveling.

 Need a visa for Morocco

if your country does not appear in one of the above lists, you should apply to the nearest Moroccan embassy or consulate.

Arrival in Morocco

When you arrive at the airport, you must receive a stamp in your passport. Be sure to obtain this stamp, as there have been reports of situations where a stamp has not been placed in a traveler’s passport and, as a result, it has been difficult to leave Morocco without proof of entry.

Prolonged stay or permanent relocation in Morocco

if you are already in Morocco and wish to settle permanently, or if you are an exchange student, you must go to the local Moroccan police station in the district where you reside. There you can contact the Bureau des Etrangers, an immigration service, and apply for a residence permit. Applying for an extended visa can be a quick procedure. For example, some travelers make a trip outside Morocco for one or two days before the end of their three-month stay. However, be aware that in a few cases, people have tried and have been refused entry to Morocco until they contact the nearest Moroccan embassy to reapply.

Travelers are encouraged to carry a copy of their passport with them at all times. If questioned by local authorities, it is important to carry proof of identity and citizenship of your country.
