COVID-19 FAQ

Travelling to Morocco, what do I need to know?

(Updated June 12th, 2022)

 

Travelling to Morocco 

Travelers must show proof of full vaccination or a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before boarding the flight to Morocco. 

Full vaccination means two shots (or one shot for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine). The date of your second shot (or one shot for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) cannot exceed four months before your date of arrival. If it does, you will need to have a third shot from the above (or second shot from Johnson & Johnson).

Passengers must also complete a public health declaration form and show upon arrival. The form can be found HERE.

Temperature checks, rapid antigen tests and random PCR tests may also be conducted upon arrival.

What are the COVID-19 safety measures in place in Morocco?

Morocco requires proof of vaccination to enter most private and public establishments, including hotels, restaurants, cafes, gyms, hammams, grocery stores, and public modes of transportation. You should always carry your vaccine card. If vaccinated in the United States, we recommend U.S. citizens carry their white CDC card as proof of vaccination.

Beside vaccination requirements, Morocco has implemented a series of preventative measures to create a COVID-secure country:

  • Social distancing of 1.5 meters (5 feet) is observed both indoors and outdoors
  • Hygiene stations with hand sanitizer are widely available
  • Private and public establishments conduct temperature checks
  • Reduced capacity throughout public transport, shopping centers, museums, etc.
