FAQs

Anyone traveling to Morocco should consider purchasing good travel medical insurance to cover costs if anything goes wrong. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, you must disclose them in your travel insurance application. There are both government and private hospitals in Morocco.

Morocco is a safe destination to visit. As a visitor, you are unlikely to be attacked or seriously injured as there is only minor crime (fraud and pickpocketing). Morocco is currently highly safe for travellers.

If you are planning a trip to Morocco, you know without a doubt that it is a Muslim country with specific dress codes for women. While no one expects you to dress like a local Moroccan, there are still principles you should follow to honor the culture and avoid unwanted attention. For a female traveler, the usual rule is to wear loose clothing that doesn’t reveal too much of her body.

If your vacation lasts no longer than three months, you can enter Morocco without applying for a visa. However, all visitors must arrive with a passport that is valid for at least six months after entering Morocco. Visa is required for all visitors to Morocco, except citizens of the following countries: Algeria, Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Bulgaria, Brazil, Chile, Congo (Rep), Ivory Coast, Guinea , Croatia Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Guinea (Conakry), Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Italy, Ivory Coast, Japan, Kuwait, Latvia, Liechtenstein , Lithuania, Luxembourg, Korea (Rep), Kuwait, Libya, Liechtenstein, Mali, Malta, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Niger, Norway, Oman, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Romania, Federation Russia, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Singapore, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Venezuela.

When it comes to Morocco, tap water is a topic that is often discussed. For locals, it’s usually safe, but if you’re visiting from another country, you should drink bottled water because you don’t know how your body will respond to the various germs prevalent in tap water.

Although Euros, US Dollars and Pounds are accepted in some tourist destinations, Moroccan currency (the Moroccan Dirham) is required for day-to-day transactions. The dirham can be received through bureaux de change at airports, large banks and hotels, or through ATMs, which are widely available in major cities and accept most credit and debit cards. Outside of Morocco, several exchange offices now provide Dirhams. However, they tend to give bad conversion rates. The simplest and cheapest approach is to use a debit card at an ATM. Unfortunately, ATMs are scarce in rural areas and small towns, and credit cards are often declined. In any case, inform your bank in advance if you plan to use a card to avoid any transactions being declined as a precaution to prevent fraud. The Moroccan central bank determines the value of the Moroccan dirham. Some larger merchants accept Euros and British Pounds. Traveler’s checks are useful in an emergency, but cashing them may take longer. To exchange the excess Dirham, you will need a currency exchange receipt.

Stop worrying if you come to Morocco and wonder if there will be enough excellent cuisine to enjoy as a vegetarian. Moroccans like meat and often offer it as a main course, but there are plenty of tasty vegetarian choices! When it comes to a gluten-free diet, the good news is that Morocco now offers a plethora of gluten-free dining and shopping alternatives. Green markets, vegetarian and organic restaurants and gluten-free patisseries can be found in Marrakech and Casablanca and Essaouira on the coast.

Wi-Fi is widely available in Morocco. However, it’s not always reliable. Cafes, restaurants, airports and hotels/riads often offer free Wi-Fi. If you want to use the Internet in a café or restaurant, it assumes that you will be buying a cup of coffee or a meal. The main problem with free Wi-Fi hotspots is that the signal can be patchy (depending on your location).

For security reasons, the government has restricted the importation of drones since March 2015. This implies that drones are banned in Morocco and in all locations and will no doubt be confiscated during airport security.
